I finally felt it give –
The floor beneath me

I never thought it would,
But it did

And now my heart is sinking,
Lower and lower,
Deep into my stomach

I try to feel something else.
I only feel numb.

I try to stop the feeling.
I can’t stop the feeling.

What should I do?
What should I say?

And still the terrible sinking,
Lower and lower,
And it won’t stop.
