pitch black stare

with each slipping beat
of my breaking heart
i feel an unconscious tug
as i try desperately to sleep,
or find some sort of fake escape
from this reality.
abandon the hope of preserving
my torn wings and fragility
while i stir silent and alone.
sometimes i am the darkest part of the night.
even the ceiling of stars feels cold,
and collapses in slow motion
around my raised arms and eyes,
proving that convoluted doubt
is simply inadequate.

pitch black stare
