Starstruck

Standard

There is blood on the cracked floor,
of a heart burst open.
Broken bones everywhere.

That’s the speed of the reality train.
Breathe.
Stay with me now.

But the gloom is setting in like fog at night,
getting darker and quieter.
Always the perfect picture of fear.

That’s the speed of the reality train.
Hush.
Close your eyes now.

Expectations are a mistake,
it’s you holding a gun to your head.
Self-destruction. Boom.

That’s the speed of the reality train.
Crash.
Imagine a happy place now.

Best to let those tears drown you,
break throughs don’t happen in a decade.
Just pollution, too much of it.

That’s the speed of the reality train.
Wait.
Free your patient self now.

Echoes of friendly laughter,
endless smiles and a stomach overwhelmed with butterflies.
Worth every painful shard.

That’s the speed of the reality train.
Ha.
Say that goodbye now.

Rip out the anger and pain,
feed them to the scavengers hovering around.
Regenerate, let those scars remind.

That’s the speed of the reality train.
Breathe.
Get out now!
