Futile


Moving

in slow motion

The exertion

to shake off the

lethargy

exhausting

Quagmire

devours

The air

thick

Each breath

a challenge

Gasping for relief

Chest heaves with

weight

Lost

in the dark

Limbs with no substance

I tumble

trying to find purchase

Stagnant determination

Floundering in place

An endless loop

Futile effort
