Abyss

Illustration by: Haven Jovel Morales

 

Submerged myself 

Into your waters. 

Baptized in a pool 

Of sorrow. 

 

Cement filled scars 

Sink me 

Into the depths of

                             r

         Cold, 

Dark

Lifeless

I scoured for pockets 

Of warmth, 

But still cold nothingness

Was commonplace.  

Deafening silence filled that abyss,

But still I sought to find warmth. 

 

Beams of light 

Glitter in

Skimming the water’s surface. 

I emerge from you, 

My love,

You, My love,

                                                   Who has hurt me.

 

I emerge from your abyss 

Lonely 

and
