SPIRAL

(this is an old one. it may fit more for lyrics that poetics, but i’ll find out.)

 

SPIRAL

 

Like a wall –

When your world crumbles,

A helping hand

Is what you need

To get you through the mess.

But the love You leave behind

Shatters into pieces,

As if a window blown In by a storm,

Leaving you empty and cold.

You pound your fists

Upon the pillow

Saying never again.

Then a knock comes upon your door –

You want to say go away,

But the pain lifts you up

Until you fall into the arms of a friend,

Where the tears

Run and land upon a soft shoulder

That will hold you in a gentle sway

Until you can begin to dance.
