Stayin' alive

This was a prompt from Writing Companion where you are asked to write something using a song title as your title. I chose to use one of the songs that were supplied.

Inspired by the title - Stayin' Alive - The Bee Gees

Hanging from the wall of life
nails dug deeply in
cringing as you feel each grain
bouncing off your chin
Trying to remain aloft
kicking with your feet
wondering what it would be like
underneath a sheet
In your head just dangling there
death you do contrive
you fight so hard to let go
why do you stay alive?

I was never thrilled with the song myself, the title is what grabbed me.
