Stuck in an Hourglass by Lauren Leigh

tumbling down
slowly slipping
just when i get back up
just when my luck has turned around,
i fall back down again
i can't escape this cycle
rising up, then falling down
i never seen to win
this vicious cycle is not for the weak
only the strong survive
i could stay like this forever,
but i don't want to
i want to break free

i slowly slip back in time
to the way things used to be,
but it makes it hurt even more
tumbling and stumbling through time,
not knowing which is up or down
tormented by the past
until i finally land
once again inside the hourglass
tossing and turning with grains of sand
an unpleasant mixture
of wounds and sand
as time goes on, cut cuts grow deeper
turning and turning and turning and turning...
