It swallows you whole,
It suffocates you til
You can no longer think
Of anything else.

It  fills you in the
Most dreadful way
And drowns you in its
Dark, profound infinity.

Poison running through
Your veins;
Hatefulness shattering
Your heart;
Emptiness. An endless void.

And your soul and body
Forever burned.

“You’re like a book”

You’re like a book:

a very dificult one,

with a small font

and a captivating cover;

your title says nothing

of who you truly are

and your plot is

much more than expected.

And I am not quite sure

If I’ll be able to

Finish reading you…
