Fade to Black

Spinning
Everything spins
The light of the room
Swirls in bright hues
twirling phantom spots
Appear to dance
Through thinning air
Nothing sat still
Everything spinning

 

 

Compelled to move
To retreat
To find safety
Compelled to stand
Beset by nausea
Head knows what’s coming
Pleads to remain still
Don’t move
Don’t tempt fate
Stomach
Says otherwise

 

 

Stood straight
Stood tall
Too fast
Head held high
Blood doesn’t follow
Spinning
Spinning
Disorientating
Striding for safety
Far too fast
Blood
Simply can’t keep up
A desperate purpose
Has head enthralled
Overconfidence
A weakness
Tempting a fall

 

 

Sunlight from the window
Intensifies
Vision blurs
Surroundings hard
To recognise
Bright colours reign
Body being drained
Till white is all that remains
Sensory overload
All thought
all noise
All spinning
Silenced
By deafening white
As it all fades
Into darkest black
And body falls
To the floor
With a thwack
