spirals

beat me up
    kick me down
        crush my soul
        take my hand
    pick me up
    give me meaning
make me whole
    all my purpose
        doomed to decay
            head like a hole
            the battle is done
        eyes to the sky
    fixed on the sun
now i can fly
    and now i can fall
        be ready to die
            it comes for us all
        i can think again
    make a list
    follow a schedule
rise to order
    exhaust yourself
        crumble
            descend into chaos
                sleeping wide awake
                    the world is a lie
                        a million miles away
                            embrace the stillness
the world is over and I realize it was all in my head
