While the night beckons me to her breast, I push myself into it and suck thick darkness into me. Fill the body with void, conduit numbness, paralyzed thoughts, shed color, & embrace silence. Still the vestiges of light were waving around my corner. I cut my ears, pluck my eyes, stitch my mouth and nose. Crossing the final twilight bridge to reach near my precious darkness.
Now I can see her,
I can feel her thorns inside me,
Her dry lips rubbing over mine,
the darkness that flames my heart and fills my throat.
Now, I am dazzled around her.
I touch her horns,
feel her bones.
The darkness she is,
the darkness she gave me…
Oh, my night, how I missed you.
