Black Hole

Your sunken, swollen black eyes

                          pierce right through my soul.

Your pupils, hollow—dazed, entranced,

                          still focused directly on me.

You say nothing; your lips curve into

                          a knowing smirk, extending a challenge.

I stupidly accept and move forward

                          towards the black hole that is you.

I gradually get sucked in by

                          your ominous force—

                                                losing my way…

And then I am engulfed by your darkness,

                          shrouded in your shadow as you

                                                control my every move.

You are the black hole that I

                          cannot possibly ever escape,

But, every fiber in my being yearns to

                          fight until the light in my very own eyes

                 die, Too.
