The Monotony of Stairs

The monotony strikes me

As I begin my ascent

One after the other

That's always the way they go

Continuous monotony

That leaves you gasping for breath

At the top

Head pounds from the change in


Like breathing it's not

Thought about

One heavy clunk

Another heavy clunk

Inhale, exhale

Unused muscles creak and scream

And become used

Tired mind sloshes in the skull

Up, up, up

Down is a whole other story

That gets me thinking

About the monotony of stairs
