ever journeyed the abyss?
the one behind all fragile bliss
for some it’s a straight road, others cross-criss
suffering, for no place to linger is this.
Ever stared at darkness’s brink
started to ponder, chosen not to think
for with evil external we find internal link
into abyssal horror all minds can sink.
enter now my private abyss, confined
place of all pain, failure, foolish fits, defined
by the cyclically shifting borders of mind
my nether of thought where dark concepts grind
Turning burning, scratching and churning
polluting pure thought into greed and yearning
the depths of my own abyss I’m discerning
what of your dark, what of it are you learning?
