  • In a Ball

    Crumpled hard against the floor
    Spider screams ringing at my fall
    Louder
    Vicious
    I
    Crumpled still
    Against the floor

    Debating in panic
    By spent breath
    On wordless fights
    You instigate the fall
    Dust purple
    A faceless futile attempt
    To my own revive

    And you
    Step over my demise
    Around my ruin
    Your Ignorance pushed under
    A loving reluctance

    Over-stood
    Waiting for the begging
    Hanging in for the asking

    Succumbed to the remaining silence

    "Help me"

    I’m in a ball

    "Please"

    You don't hear me
    Crumpled so hard against the floor

    Still

    Stolen breath

    A purple face only you can see

    "Help me"

    "Please"

    I’m stuck in this ball

    Unable to rise

    Sinking deeper
    Into this floor
