Underneath the House

dragging feeble feet
a silent walk to death's grasp
beaten under house
the last sigh escapes her lungs
whiskers shrivel as years pass

    * AFTER VIEWING THIS SHORT VERSE TWICE, SWEET BEAUTIFUL LAURA, I FIND IT QUITE GRIPPING. STIRRING MY HEART DEEPLY AMID REFLECTIONS OF THE SORROWS WHICH PERMEATE THIS PLACE AND AGE. WE SMILE WE GRIMACE WE PERSEVERE WE HOLD OUR BREATH WE WAIT. PROFOUND, AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR BEAUTY'S LOVELY VISIT; WONDERFUL. MY LOVE, RACHEL *

    does the world end with a bang or a whimper? Really like your vocabularly and imagery to set up final exasperated line
