Hollows out to this excruciating pull
Step by reluctant step
Into uncertain
Into shadows
No homecoming this
Looming shapes cast unknown
Pained knowledge of what is lost
Moments creeping by without defense
Without any indication that this
Falseness of hope
Broken free
Lodged in arteries
Each heart beating
Bringing the heaviness of truth
Or spun sugar fakery
Unknown which
Until pains precipice
And the only choice is jump
Or shatter here
Bereft of all but silence
Darkness broken by screams from frozen vocal cords
And the unquiet tears of the damned
