Spiral Nowhere

Updated on July 2, 2017

It seems like this spiral is going nowhere

Outside the edges I begin to stare

Losing control and my grip on reality

I'm slipping down a stairwell I cannot see


Spiraling faster as I continue to lose control

Searching deeper and getting lost within my soul

Turning and weaving through, new images appear

Some seem so distance, others flash near



I cannot seem to focus anymore

I do not know when I will approach the floor

Timeless emotions begin to greet me

Holding out my hand to set me free


I am lost in a sea of a discomforting feel

Have I lost all my sense of what is real?

I travel further down to see what is below

The spiral just seems to further go

Slowly I begin to decrease in my speed

I am now greeted with the warmth that I need

Craving this new sort of feeling and light

I embrace the end to this endless fight


I am engulfed in your grace and your love

The spiral no longer bottom, I rise above

Seeing the eternal path I must avoid

Seeing the light of eternity now fills my void

      It definitely creates a tone of finding the light at the end of the tunnel and coming out the other side. Very story like in its structure.

      Very metaphorical. I really like the concept and the way the spiral suddenly inverted.
