non-sobriety poetry hour #1

Why do I feel like I'm yelling into silence
Every thought,action,word
Circle around the ceiling
Spinning above my head
I want someone to spin with me

I want you to hear me when I scream
I want you to scream back
I want you to hold onto me
Because I feel like I'm Rolling away

Hold me from a rope
It's weak and weary
But so am I
If I hold back real tight
It should carry me for a while
I'll flap my arms
Swing back and forth
The rope strains
Will I fall?

I'll try to fly
But I'm not a bird
I'm a magpie
And you're so shiny
