The world spins with me

Here I am, I stand
for one thing
I stand tall and proud
and shrink -

It’s like a magnifying class
being pulled away from an ant
as it grasps for its life

Here I am, falling
A simple hole in the ground
where I stomped angrily

the world spins with me,
the colors bedazzle and amaze
everything seems slow,
why is the clock broke?

Here I am, on the ground
now grasping for my life
here I am, an ant under a magnifying class
gasping for air
begging for life

the world spun with me
like a top that wont stop
and now it’s fallen, and I am lifeless

I wrote this to a song. I don’t know why I thought of this. But I think it’s personally one of my favorites.

    This remember be so much of a film…
    “The Incredible Shrinking Man”…a SF movie so interesting and so close to what our essence is when we are close to the infinitesimal. An ant is the epithome of that infinitesimal vision of ourselves, lost in a world that has not the same distances, outlines and proportions. And the idea of the magnifying glass is so accurate…I can see that this is surrealistic but completely attached to an image that is inside. The idea of falling, is the same as the image we have of us, being ego-desintegrated in another dimension. I love it.
