Engulfed by darkness.

A swirl of emotions

Fueling your descent.

The weight of an object

Can never compare to

The weight of dread,

Of the inevitability

You know as despair.

There is no angel on your shoulder-

Just an endless black fog

Welcoming you into its creep.

Inching along,

Swaddling you and sprawling

Across this flat ground.

Invading hearts and minds

As you breathe in the night.
