Sticky Truth

The ecstasy of hallucination, 
Patience of an eternity
Hanging onto
The frown of a clown.
Breathing in a moment
Without a sound.
A brief high
Sugary trip along some brim
Until gravity kicks in.
Et tu, Brutus? 
Betrayal is the only truth that sticks.
Dancing along a balancing beam
Towards the horizon's gleam.
