i feel
the cracks
spread through me
any sudden move
and i could
fall to pieces

the kids go back
this afternoon
and the emptiness
is already
beckoning gently

i remain
on a sea of
softly lapping
slowly leeching
all feeling
from my
shivering limbs
the darkness seeps
across my vision
as i float
over bottomless
