A friend of mine has borderline syndrome, she asked me to
write something using that and music, this is what came of
it.

She loved it.

My world collapsing, a song playing, the notes they scramble my mind,
they swarm around me.
 
I see myself, walking in the school hall, just walking, listening to a song,
my song.
 
I see myself getting to class, 
sitting down and taking off my headphones,
the song and notes dissapear, my world crumbling away even faster, 
now I'm just sitting on a small floating rock with myself living beneath me.
 
Class is over, only a pebble remains, my sanity almost gone, in one last gaze I see myself, waiting for the train, just waiting.
 
The train is coming, I see myself taking a step forward, the pebble crumbles, I'm falling, falling back to my body... 
 
The body now laying in front of a speeding train...
