Sometimes our eyes lock
And I see a bottomless abyss
Of darkness and despair
Mostly I walk away
But I don’t forget you exist
Those pools of darkness
Haunt my  being

I keep moving, trying to forge
A world deep inside, a world separate
A world far removed
But then, some fetters suck me in
I flail, I kick barely stay afloat
I pant, I splutter, I gasp…
The wretched phantoms
and the pools of darkness
now merely a murky shadow

the ripples recede, the waters become placid
I sink into the illusory stupor once again
I breathe…
 another stone is thrown in
Again, yet again…
