Downward dog, downward spiral

Trainers on, feet flat forward.
Left to loss.
Right to rigour.

At the beginning,
Follow procedure, find composure.
At the beginning,
Inhale, come centre.
Exhale and purge.

Feeding an endorphin addiction,
An old friend watches from the gallery.
Obsession charges my battery.

Downward dog, downward spiral,
Eagle pose, soar sorrow soar.
The main event, lunge into obligation.
Heartbeats rising, skeletons flying.
Hero pose, hold me close, take a safer dose.

Battery dying, endorphins fading.
Inhale, come centre.
Exhale and purge.
Trainers off, body breaking, crying.
