Hanging from the floorboards,

Vomit on the ceilings,

Puking guts, a nasty sludge

That represents my feelings.

 

How’d it get so upside down? 

How’d it get so heavy?

Choking, Choking, AM I CHOKING?

Wire barbed and squeezing.

 

Blood, you coat my skeleton,

Blood, you coat my skin,

Blood, you leak into my lungs-

Remind me of my sins.

 

Blood and pressure,

Heart, my treasure, 

Drooling red wine gush.

Feeling numb- No-

Feeling dumb- No- 

Can’t escape the rush.

 

Young I linger-

Aging inter-

Galactic dust-

I must

Be sideways 

Falling 

Curtain calling 

Fate of all 

Chained lost.

 

Can not voice 

The dead undone 

The dead undone 

Done dead.

Alive can’t voice

Alive can’t help

Can’t keep me from

Myself. 

 

Ceilings embrace my 

Floorboards embrace by 

Feelings -omit- tie

Heavy 

 

Upside down 

And sideways bound 

I’m gathering I’m ready. 

 

Blood, you coat my brain 

Now do yah?

Blood, you coat my throat.

Blood, you wash my eyes 

In crimson 

Shadows to dance amongst. 

 

I have no ears 

Left

I have no fears 

Right

Wrong 

Dabbling 

Dabbling 

Drugged.

 

I have some fears

Left 

I have my ears 

Right?

I hear a 

A plight- 

Foreshadow you might-

 

Third eye 

Brow tilt 

Down 

Slit 

Like 

Snakes

I shake 

Can’t break

Falling 

Can’t wait 

To die 

Alive 

I try 

To fly 

I am 

Wingless 

Winded

Breathless 

Toxic 

Insane

Sane

Insane

I’m talking

Thinking

Talking 

Thinking

Thoughts are 

Evermore 

Evermore 

Thoughts say

There isn’t a way 

to play this game 

Without sanity anymore.

Oh I’m sure.

 

So.

 

Walk with me with our tongues tied,

Walk with me on this ceiling,

Walk with me down the walls to the floorboards, so we can share our sinning. 

 

Sewn shut 

My lips are black 

And red of all I spoke

And here you take me

Can’t escape me 

Like I can’t escape my

 

Plagues

Plagued 

I mentioned a game,

Have you played before?

Hanging from the floorboards,

Vomit on the ceilings,

Our pieces played are these infinite, infinite, nasty sludge blood feelings. 

 

Time you take me

Swiftly wake me 

Again and again and more.

And this I know 

Through death, I adore, 

I’ll awake once more.

With you.
