Steps were heavy

Growing heavier

Taking more effort

Making her slower

A shaking began

More of a tremor

With each footfall

Was a tidal wave

Of fluid motion

Her years kept her

Clung to her bones

And held her tight

She was caught

Underneath gravity


ing deeper

Into the ground


The ground
