Waiting to explode
energy overflows
Driven by exhaustion
I fly through life.

An oxymoron
I'm tired, but full of energy
Adrenalin courses through my veins
mixed with caffeine
I'm flying high.

I'm almost too high
I know I'm going to fall
Yet, still I keep rising
the landing is going to hurt.

I can feel the blood rushing
through my body
I'm so aware
so high.
I'm flying.
