Heavy Ness

When I sleep I feel long and slim.
Bones rest light and fine, glowing slightly,
like phosphorescence on the night sea.

But when I get up in the morning -
same lumps and clumps in the mirror -
same press of gravity.

lol, yes I do!

Since I hit 50 I seem to have fallen to pieces. So many little aches and pains. And arthritis! It really hurts! I have so much more sympathy for my mum now.
