Breakdown - Poem by Scarred Unknown

Sitting on the bus ride home
Walking toward the door
I’m waiting for that moment
Falling to the floor…
Step inside the door
Falling to my knees
The tears start to flow
I’m waiting for this moment

The world seems to close
All goes ablaze
The moment is so close
I feel the breeze blow
I’m heading for the breakdown
Bending toward my toes
Fallen to my knees
Tears start to flow
I’m a broken show

The moment is here
I’m now in my car?
Driving down the road?
I pass the bar
Don’t know were I’m going
Or what I’ll leave behind
The bridge is up ahead
I’m running out of time
The breakdown is mine.
