This is your brain…
Throbbing in sync with your heart,
Crumbling at the edges.
On the verge of weightlessness,
Random blue sparks every few minutes.
Swollen and glowing a pale yellow,
Suddenly, too big for your own head.
Melting slowly into a puddle of smiles,
Warm and blurry like a mirage on the horizon.
Liquefied from the shock,
Then frozen in the shape of hardship.
Heavy and sunken in the skull,
swollen, dehydrated and starting to bruise.
Sizzling like the pavement in July,
Tense and on the verge of combustion.
disintegrated into a pile a jelly.
slowly turning 13 different shades of blue.
This is your brain on life.
