Wasting away

Skeletal remains

Disappearing and melting slowly

Pulling up Earth

Just like a blanket

Always waiting for  eyes to be closing

Total calm

Lying backwards

As if you are falling

Into the caverns

where the centre is lit

The depths of the Earth bid you welcome at last

Death  beckons you forward

“Come forth” he speaks

“Take off your hat and find a seat”
