Lumbering Heavy Weight

the world bends around my head
such massive gravity enforcing
the slow and plodding to fall
into orbit clouding my view
adding to the density
squashing me
hardly functioning in this
alotment of volume
mass hysteria by all my moving parts
I shall surely explode
a super novella of moans and groans
a brooding tragedy
darkness in light
death in life
my only grace
being a cautionary tale
do not fall into a self made grave
coldness, hardness, deadness
to escape entrapment
go naked
fly high
fly fast
fly free
go lightweight
