Abyss 1 & 2

Abyss 1
the wax melts
center collapses
Red — rings lowering further into the heart
of the plastic Abyss

like a storm, Dark clouds
sear the air
clumsily climbing out
the fire still burns

the scent of decay and raspberries
climb higher
i am lost in its streams
of chaotic flight

like a storm, Darkness hovers
and the fire dances
playing tag with my breath

Abyss 2
I put my hand on the hot stove yesterday
just to see if I could feel it
I looked at the mark on my palm
it kind of looked like Jesus
smirking

it turned Dark Red; the flesh boiling up
the water flowing beneath

my eyes glazed over
but dry beneath
like an Abyss into nothing
but the most gruesome memories
of the screams of children being chased
by the boogie man

where did they go when they ran?

I feel like my body is walking
and people stare
they know
my laughs are dulled
and my skin is so thick
that even the worst burn leaves me chilled
