Poetry Absurdity: The Steady Decline

I was once high.

Now I’m low.

The sky was the limit.

Now the ground is where I’m headin’.

How do I know?

My stomach tells me so.

Tingling. Churning. Twisting.

The ground is where I’m going to land.

I’ll tell you how I know.

My eyes tell me so.

Falling. Floating. Flailing.

The world is passing me by.

Didn’t I tell you?

I was once pretty high.

But not anymore,

I’m heading for the floor.

The bottom is my destination.

The same place where I started.

Back to square one.

I’m done.

    1. Is this the comment that vanished? I had that happen before — it’s very irritating!

      Just like Candy Land, right? You think you’re going to win, then, for reasons out of your control — you’re back to the starting position. I hate that game.

    1. You mean, like, being ripped out of my gourd? Haha — I can see how someone can interpret that, but no — the poem illustrates being at the top of your game, then documents the crash, for whatever reason.

    1. Hmmm…there seems to be a glitch with your comments! I always receive the notification many hours later — I’ll have to troubleshoot the problem, but I don’t think the issue is on my end. It could be WordPress.

      I hope the flashbacks reminded you of fantastic memories! Haha.


      1. I haven’t received notifications concerning re-blogs, some comments, and when someone links to my blog. I have to manually check my notifications and make sure I didn’t miss anything, which sucks.
