the pit

falling in a deep dark pit
keep on going lower
don’t know how to leave it
speed won’t get any slower
look at at the world so black
need help to pull me through
try to get my courage back
by calling a friend or two
don’t talk at all just cry and cry
while all my friends cajole
but although so hard they try
can’t make me leave my hole
chew some gum, stretch my foam
read a book, punch a pillow
color black, write a poem
what will help, never know
when every idea’s been tried
from the beginning start again
but my brains are so very friedjust wish it all would end.
