It strikes a cleft

between you,

so deep, that eventually

you don’t know how

to bride the gap,



Instead, you stare into the abyss


Looking into that void

you pray

for knowledge

or, forsaking that

a decision.


A moment,

& I don’t mean

a beam of celestial light,

but rather

a gritty, tear-stained

screaming match

or broken day.


Something easier,

than happiness

or love,

Something darker

and hate-filled.
