Darkness

Darkness

Unannounced

Darkness that swallows in whole

Close your eyes, it is the only reprieve from the black you know

Feel its debilitating choke as it pins you down by the chest in suffocating hold

As its fingers slowly climb your neck removing hopeful breath from your heart and throat

Don’t run

Don’t hide

Lean is close it speaks a tale of your flat lining worth

It knows your vulnerabilities and bullet holes still bleeding from your past

Let it comfortably devour the shadows that the darkness will always cast

Lay down with your beast and whisper in its ear

Go fuck yourself

You are nothing to fear

  1. I am being choked by my own darkness that I want to believe is within my reach to kill. Unknowing how to let this short-lived relationship with this person go i an suffocating. Tortuous. Shallow breathes and a cries of lonliness. Wanting so much to be still and not long for something that never was nor will ever be. Cannot reach peace.
