Inspired by the myth of the titan Atlas (Greek mythology)

The Weight of the Skies

I feel the weight of the skies

I feel the weight of the skies rest upon my shoulder blades

And the burn and stretch

And the burn and stretch of the meat beneath my skin

As I carry it, sweat rolls down my temples

And I walk an endless winding path

I look up and I see you

Sitting on your high throne

Cackling like the mighty claps of thunder

Voice bleeding into the world's innermost core

Shaking the ground beneath me

As if to taunt me

To mock my ever wobbling knees

To tell me "This is what you deserve!"

I weaken

I f

I f a

I f a l

I f a l l

My body limps and meets the darkened soil with a loud thud

A sound that rippled through the atmosphere as I wither away

The skies

The skies collapse

Breaking and shattering into thousands, millions of glass shards

Showering the earth like rainfall

A reminder of my defeat

Of the weakness I possessed

Of the weight of it all.
