eternity blinks

i lie still in
the darkness
a grub a maggot a caterpillar
the blanket cocoon
tightly wrapped
as i struggle go find comfort

i am a shadow
the shadow of a shadow
the reflection of the night sky
from the heart of black hole
i am an insignificant speck
a squiggled line
inside the eyelid of forever

i lie still
i am the darkness
an unfortunate byproduct of sin
hell wrapped in failing flesh
ready to destroy everything
before i go
a predator in the tall grass
half blind
attacking blurry caricatures
striking nothing
being nothing
a lone spectre haunting
abandoned love letters
as i lie forgotten
at the back of a drawer
