There’s a pool in me, you know.
An endless, bottomless affair of bright blue darkness
An orb that sometimes
Extends tendrils of its depth
Opens me up as wide as a torn womb
Makes me reveal my rawness
All its jagged bones and deformities
As flat and exposed as a sun bleached field of yellow grass.
And utterly laughable am I then
For all I am, and all I am not, and all I wanted to be.
Did I tell you how much I hate
That piercing sound of laughter, the shriek that then
Drills into my head like a cruel, unyielding beak?
Oh the sky above and the earth below,
I want to shred your futile solidity into pieces
Raze your placidity to the ground
And squeeze out the life out of you, the still air of my room.
Why would you not howl, shriek and twist into me?
Darkness, come to me then.
