As I wander through this apartment
it feels like walking through time
Not forward, as most believe
Not sideways, as I believe
But backward 
Every morning the world looks imposing
Like I am getting further away
By mere inches
Things seem to weigh a bit more
Lifting them becomes more difficult
By mere grams
Time that used to feel so weightless
Time that used to feel so expansive

It is hunting me now

This is a really great piece Sheena.

Time only knows one direction. Eventually, the hunter will become the hunted. Hang in there, Sheena.
