Slipping Away

by rudyskaggs

But a victim of night's out infamous thief,

I lie silently; fatigue-ridden eyes captivated by the ceiling above watching the textured paint swirl, menacing Rorschach blots creeping in and out of focus.

I slip from the grasp of my sanity,

consciousness suspended, swinging precariously from my frayed spinal cord above the chasm of repair hidden just behind my blank countenance.

I fall,

engulfed by the snowy static, into the vast expanse; the rabbit hole of intrusive thoughts that gnaw holes in my decaying cerebrum.
