paralysis

i saw shadows
stretched long and thin
in the ever setting sun
and so i hid from the sun

i heard voices
calling quiet like whispers
breaking like wave upon the wind
and so i hid from the wind

i felt hands
caressing as a lazy lover’s
as rainfall licked my skin
and so i hid from the rain

and now

there is nothing
and i am numb as the dead
buried within the dark soil of myself
unable to breathe for the weight of it all
