    A massive piercing, fiercely steering
    his mind – he needed some time to think
    he drank away his problems
    with liquid sorrow,
    ironically expecting joy
    to materialize some time tomorrow,
    he knew he couldn’t live this way forever
    mind divided
    time destructively bided
    to the point where
    it seems he constantly denied it,
    but he couldn’t escape
    his fear too strong
    so he continued to sing his ‘near-death’ song,
    because near in his mind wasn’t close enough
    not to change
    not to admit his behavior was strange
    and imbalanced,
    he scraped the bottom to long,
    then made up his mind to rise,
    only to reach the horizon
    take a look around,
    and become terrified of the skies….
    so he looked for a curtain call,
    4 bottles and numbness
    to accelerate the fall,
    death at the bottom of a 50 foot wall,
    stumbling, he took his final breath,
    a bow to all the troubles he’d entertained,
    the jumped,
    exiting, stage left
