The Deep

I’m losing my light

Ungifting my spark

The bright in me drowning

In rivers of dark

 

The inky slick tendrils

Of blackness are winning

Deeper and deeper

My life is unspinning

 

Its dragging me under

I’m drifting apart

Losing my luster

For living and art

 

Down here too long

now the brightness is blinding

my hunger for flame

is steadily unwinding

 

the blackness is safer

can’t lose what I’ve lost

if I stay here forever

I won’t feel the cost.
