back to black

black souls like black holes


shaded in mystery


deprived of glow


present from the beginning  of history

they’ll be the last known

    If it was any longer it would be ruined. as always. i am moved to questions … why is this the case? even for the rare soul that leaves this Earth lightly, the souls connected to it are rendered unbearably heavy… can be no other way.
