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.

  2. Yea..we all go back where we came from …into a nothing we do not even remember…only getting there might make you feel blue.

    • 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.

  3. The first thing I thought, too, was crashing from a high?

    • 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.

    • 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.


Say something. Come on. You know you want to.
