the blinding darkness

in this dark and empty bottomless pit,

here i fall.

falling quickly,  evermore.

the blinding darkness curtains the sight,

my eyes do not see where i go.

with my ears wide open,

i devour the scene –

 

the images of familiar faces scream by,

all the blank looks give in to ignoring stares

 

in this dark and empty bottomless pit

here i plummet boundlessly.

on the dirt sides by the fingernails i scrape,

my flesh torn,  exposing the broken bone.

in a free fall wail, a last breath whispers.

in this dark and empty bottomless pit,

here i plunge.
