Black Hole

There is a hole inside me,

       flickering shadows
       like tattered moths
       rim the outside

a dark red vortex
of swirling

       words that hurt
       thoughts that torment
       beliefs that kill

drawing me inside
grabbing

       a strand of hair
       a hand
       a heart

deeper
further

       cloaking me in dark night
       sunlight receding
       hope fading

deeper
further

       loosening bonds
       breaking chains
       cutting heart strings

deeper
further

       loosing sight of the light
       bathing in the black ink of despair
       floating in endless limbo

deeper
further

       the final strands snapping
       the lights winking out one by one
       letting go.
