Living in the fast lane...

“It’s Only Suicide”

 

It’s coming hard

your near the

end

fire racing in

the sky

but you don’t

care

your quite prepared

it’s only suicide

if you die,

you make your

stand

get knocked around

forget to walk

away

you said some

words

got in a

fight

but made the

bastards pay,

Fuck the odds

it’s only math

you can’t kill

what’s already

died

you twist the

throttle tighter

tomorrow screams

as it goes

by,

your life is

skidding sideways

feel the asphalt

tear against

your skin

your head’s messed

up

your vision blurred

a loser till

the end,

crank it up

drop it down

scrape out

another notch

gather all

that you can

find

before you

end up in

a box,

seconds fall

time drips away

a puddle

then a pool

you might be

living dangerously

but then that’s

nothing new,

climb a little

higher

ride that wave

learn to fly,

but you don’t

care

your quite prepared

it’s only suicide

if you die…

Risk taking pushed to the limits.....a desperation-driven write, Tom.

unmasked delusions

Brutal descriptions in this one. I like the way it was phrased at the end. Impactful
