Secret Desire

Pulling on my heart strings
Boiling my heart’s red, red blood
Tearing my insides
Bursting the door
To a black hole of darkest night
Hidden deep inside
Revealing a desire
So desperate
So intense
So vague

       Tendrils of darkest night
           Waving
           Swaying
           Undulating
           Rippling
       In the atmosphere
       Longing
       For a connection
       For that spark
       For a shimmer of light

       Tendrils of darkest night
           Stretching
           Extending
           Expanding
           Spreading
       Yearning
       For contact
       For proximity
       For synchronicity
       For a blaze of light

       Tendrils of darkest night
           Dripping
           Seeping
           Oozing
           Leaking
       Into the ground
       Probing
       Retreating
       Fizzling out
       For the lack of light

The black hole
Closing up
Hidden again
Deep inside my shell
Invisible to the naked eye
The door triple locked,
Welded and nailed shut
A desire unfulfilled
A connection yet to be made
A secret between me and I.
