I'm chasing after you again, when am I not?
We run the same speeds but are always so far apart!
I get glimpses sometimes, seeing you at the top of the steps, calling me, laughing at me, mocking me
I feel a rage and it makes me run faster
But I miss a step and fall
One mistake after the other, piling up like last week's garbage
What a screw up
So, so stupid
Why Can't I Get Anything Right?
Around and Around we go
A spiral that only ends in up
But I keep slipping
The souls of my shoes are worn, my feet are bleeding, i'm seeing the cracks on the steps
How long before I fall again?
How long before I see you again?
Will you smile for me?
I fill with hope, the rage, then fear as I fall once more
Reaching my hand up to try and hold on, and only seeing that neverending spiral staircase spin up to the sky and beyond
