The Laundromat

Location

 

Turning and spinning

Round and round

We go

 

Losing sight of

What we love

Most

 

The water rushes

Past us

Over us

Under us

 

Suddenly we are

No longer standing

We are on our asses

Flung there by the

Ever flowing water

 

Up

Down

Up

Down

 

I am not really

Aware

Anymore

Of where I truly

Am

 

This strong current

Has taken my feet

From beneath me

 

What is

Up

Where is

Down

 

Struggling for air

I spin

Confused

And lost

 

Only to be tossed

To the heat

The cold water

Was better

It did not

Hurt

 

The fire burns us

We are still spinning

But now we are hot

No longer wet

 

I am burning

Surrounded

By you

All of you

 

Are you burning too

As we spin without

End

 

Up

Down

Up

Down

 

I feel sick

This is no

Fun ride

This is death

 

Cold

Then hot

Drowning

Then on fire

 

There is no

Safe place

Not even

In your arms

 

You are hot too

Are you burning

Like me

Endlessly spinning

Losing you

 

I am lost.

Turning

And spinning

Up

Down

Up

Down

Round and round

We go

 

We go
