Lethargic bullets

Pacing attention

Lethargic eyes following the trace of unanswered thoughts

A tickling mind caught gasping

Growing impatient with the world

Moving towards a backwards track

Stiff silence interrupted by deafening chaos 

A mouth spilling out empty words

Chasing a cluttered room with dirty windows

Putting on a buttoned up smile

And uncreased walk

Filling the air with promise

Darting and tapping for reward

Only to fall into dark waters where the drops plonk with doubt

And ripple failure 

Restless energy leaves turned out sheets

Where a wilted body tries to carry itself

Dragging a heavy head 

Circling into the ceiling
