I am holding it all in
that it carves multiple tunnels and delves
in each bleary vein
pulling every fibre of my being
as it holds me within its clutches,
shrouding my skin in its shadows,
turning me into what it is, to take its place.
It seeps through every crack and crevice,
with indefinite humanity,
whispering omnious hymns in my ears.
It leaves only the soot,
As I see again what the night has brought
I think about the sun in your eyes
and how I miss the light.
