Face down

A network of chalky clouds fill the circular sky,

I race towards the horizon,

But my feet don’t move at all;

The light glows upon my cheeks,

I feel an unholy surge within –

The arrogance sinks deep,

Ice cold, hardening my soul;

The silence slaps me in the face

A sudden jolt, bringing back reality,

Face down – inches away from my depravity,

I see it now: my own humanity

You gave me everything I am,

And without you, 

I’d still be lying there,

Dying on the ground.
