Falling;

Down and down we go,

No light, no ground,

Just falling,

Will I ever find the land?

Hands out,

Steadying myself,

Twisting and turning,

Dizzy from being turned upside down.

Falling;

Falling, floating through space,

No walls to hold to steady my pace.

Falling;

Down,

Down,

Into the black abyss,

Twisting,

Turning,

Upside down,

Dizzy again, from being on my head.

I shut my eyes as I spin,

Now standing straight,

Feeling woozy without being boozy.

Falling faster,

Down,

Up

Around,

Back down like a bullet.

I hear an alarm clock shrieking in the distance,

Then I wake up;

Oh shucks, now I have to get up for work!

Can't I just go back to sleep, and,

Enjoy falling?
