Black Hole Burning

I write, reflecting on my deepest ache
Reflecting into you

-infinity reflection

As I walk into the woods, I find my pool of leaves
Maple reds, like I bleed

-and weep, and weep

Valediction in repose, the soft crunch of leaf crumble
Delicate, I crackle and shatter

-among their leaf corpses

My mouth opens wide, a black hole of endless keening
Harpy screams as my jaw detaches

-forever slack and open

The black threatens inverse, to flood out, rather than pull in
Turn the world with sorrow

-pirouette in sadness, my earth

My hateful eyes burn as my lurid quill takes flight
Imbued into my skin

-tatted eyes on eyelids

The world burns so I will smother it
With my lightlessness

-there be a storm coming
