Ebony

Lost in allure,

Irretrievable from condensation

moisture expended from your breath.

 

An impenetrable cloud of desolation

one sickly inhale of your contagion

and flowering revelations wilt

buzzing hopes collapse

and eyelids close.

 

As your power grows stronger

the strumming world devotes

all the color to holed stars.

Hues dancing as they dive

deep into the light of abyss.

 

And when you’re exhale has finally faded,

the sickness evaporates,

the world stretches tall,

and children come out to play.

 

But what they find is all that’s left

is abasement

and dusky


ebony.
