Tumbling down the rabbit hole…

(This is a weird one. I’m not sure what it even is. Don’t read too much into it.)

My spine stays stiff, arms open wide

My shoulders are boulders, my brain mostly fried

I’m a locket in a pocket

Care to see it? What’s inside?

It’s a heart, and not a picture.

One bleeding as it pumps.

Stand back, watch it bump

disrupted feelings to the ceilings

Hear it tHuMp, ThUmP, ThuMp

Healing reality, the newest casualty

On this train ride in my mind, so unkind

Stay behind, or take this ride to the end

Round the bend, watch me rend

My eyeballs from their sockets.

    This reminds me of a line from Rilke, “A song only a god could bear to hear.” I hurt for you and with you.
