    It was cinematic how time
    began to lose steam.
    The way each step felt uncertain
    On the confused ground.

    With great conviction
    He fell through the room door and
    Carefully placed his paper plate down.

    In that moment,
    His attraction for his bed
    Simmered away...
    The floor, however, stayed ready,
    Waiting to pounce,
    Waiting for him to return.

    Without a thought even thinking
    About being born, he gave
    Into the affair.
    Sinking wholeheartedly.
    With no control or resistance
    His body became one with the
    Foundation he laid upon.

    And for once, he saw the world
    In its eyes:

    "Things appear larger than they are
    From down here",
    He thought,
    "Problems seem larger than life
    When you feel like you've fallen."

    He quickly tried to bring himself
    Back to eye-level
    But the weight of his body was too
    Much for him to bare.
    It was as if he was trying to
    Lift in a weightclass far above
    What he could carry.

    He just laid there.
    Praying someone would help,
    But hoping no one would see his vulnerable
    Body mimicking a crime scene.

    As if he had become a bad actor
    Auditioning for his own funeral
    He stayed still,
    Frozen
    And so flustered that even his
    Thoughts vanished with his lines.

    Everything around him followed suit:
    The wind held its breath,
    The TV closed its eyes
    And for a few seconds..

    Serenity flew around the room
    Before the subtle movement of resting fingers.

    Muscle by muscle
    The boy struggled and clawed
    His way back onto the bed.

    She welcomed the
    Prodigal son with
    Open arms.
