Spiders jumping on my back
Digging into my soul with their daggers
Climbing and biting and fighting up my throat
Screaming and hissing as loud as the noise will carry
To fall out of my lips with the soft soft whisper "I'm fine"
Falling- wake up- falling-stay up
Keep your eyes open- it's the only way you'll survive
But what if I don't want to? What if I just can't handle it?
Back and forth & back and forth
Something tells me to keep moving
Who, what, myself or they- I DONT KNOW
but I argue with them, I stay focused... until I hear the whisper again "I'm fine"
Falling-wake up- falling-stay up
Your mom will need you- your sister will need you-husband will miss you.
Numb out the care of that tick in your stem and lose yourself.
