The earth around you begins to vibrate as what feels like years of tension is released, breaking up the soil into DRY CRUMBS OF DIRT.
these CRUMBS BEGIN to gYrate to an unseen rythm. The bass seems heavy under the earth as waves begin to form TO A NATURAL TIME SIGNATURE.
attempting to keep your balance you kick a foot out. this has the opposite effect and you find yourself on your back looking up at the sky. the waves benEAth you slowly pull you DOWNWARDS.
Your attempts to get up sink each limb FURTHER benEIth the surface. you begin to slowly sink
first your legs
then your torso
you can hear the music that moves the earth now
a sound so fAmiliAr to you but something you definIteLy have been living without
it makes you feel empty
aS though this sound was ONCE yours
but had been lost
your jaw is now being submerged and you think about your breath
you wonder if breathing under the soil will be harder than breathing on the surface
the air has been poisoned up there
...its effects were slow...
but IT would PHYSICALLY break you down over time
after your nose is submerged you realise you aRE breathing just fine
EVEN DEEPER THAN USUAL
baffled you panic
and start to thrash your limbs
only for this to make you sink faster
until your eyes are covered
and all you see is
