Poem: I close my eyes, things get crazy, I feel the quickening of my pulse.
My words spill out. Did I say that? Here we go again.
Itís like a high, it feels good. Too good.I want to dance sing leap, go as fast as the wind.

Things that I thought were wrong feel right, things that I believed to be right feel like chains.
Somewhere inside a little voice cries. I can barely hear it. What did it say?

It doesnít matter anyway.

The blood is rushing in my ears, I canít hear and all I want is release.
I ride the high as far as it can go,
Knowing when I reach the top I will see how far I have to fall.
I close my eyes, things get crazy I feel the despair in my heart
My words come out with venom and hate. Here we go again
My days seem bleak and not worth my time
I pray for the days to just go by.
Somewhere inside a voice cries, I can barely hear it. What did it say?
It doesnít matter anyway.
I struggle to cope, to smile, to care. I put on a face that seems ok
I have fallen. So far so deep it seems like Iíll never get out. My only joy comes from the little faces that need me. I can pull it together until they''re not here
This is the part that makes it so hard. Why do I have to come here?

While I was up and flying, at least I wasnít here.
I may have been destructive but I wasnít in this pit.
How can I hate it if it is the opposite of this?
For weeks and weeks I see no end. I feel like my life is over.
Out of the blue.. I close my eyes. Things get crazy I feel the quickening of my pulse. Here we go again...
