A fine balancing act

I am not convinced
that death
did not betray her.

Made the act of living
too hard
but kept her undertaking
at arms length
so that
where she was left
was neither here nor there.

A foot on either side.

And in the middle
a body.

Her body
which clung to her bones
sucking her dry
of every living thought
she had
ever had
until all that was left
was a case.

The fraction of what
she had once been.

And a mind
