Heart-shaped Coal

A drop of ink into the water
Diffuse into every nook and corner
Burl of ebony wood, began to look familiar
Like the inner state of my mind.

It's a never ending freefalling
Down a rabbit hole
Never knowing where it stops
Nor where it starts

Darkness is corrupting
Tainted heart is paper with ink
Forever changed
Never the same

My fingers, my thumbs
I feel it but I don't see it
My wrist, my arms

I am alive
I am screaming
I am consumed
By the abyss that engulfed me

So, save me
From myself
From the onyx prison
That I've locked myself in

Until then
I will wait
will wait

Wait no longer.
