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
