The depth of the chasm, inside my black hole…
…I am squinting with feigned, stained acuity.
Climbing out my crevice, it’s taking a toll…
…the widening fissure, of vacuity.

Stuck in my hollow pit, my cavernous cleft…
…without any escape, I am trapped once more.
Expanse of nothingness, wondering what’s left…
…while falling back down, I’ve settled the score.

My surrounding system, an airtight vacuum…
…the sign outside the door, says ONE VACANCY.
The walls are closing in, my impending doom…
…the burning neon sign, it does comfort me.

Never expansion, only contraction…
…within my abyss, I swallow the light.
