Stepping Out

What’s this that I hold in my two hands
Going through my fingers is white sand
Falling slowly at first nothing too grand
Now it’s covering my feet like quicksand

The dune’s sand becomes heavy round my feet
Not able to step out it’s set like concrete
It’s the witch’s spell dancing on the dune complete 
Yelling, “I’m stepping out now it’s my turn to cheat”
