I confess

I've not been writing much lately. It takes a very complex and turbulent emotion to move me these days...and so here is the latest example of that.

a single misstep,
too far to the left or right,
will send us both
down

but not falling;
rather, suspended apart
in a void with no
sound

so we will know
from personal experience
the suction of the
vacuum

removing what is
vital; our lives compressed
in a joyless, lifeless
womb

nothing escapes
the black hole, which isn't
black, but filled with
light

-and the brightness
of which is deep and dense;
thru this we take our
non-flight

and the utter silence
of which is death to hearts
that cease to beat
aloud

and the violence
of which lies in stillness;
breaking the will of
the proud-

into this, mischance
will topple us both together
though only one should
stumble

a serene purgatory
created of subtle inner selves
which in turn will crush us
humble.



There is a long story behind this one...but the bottom line is that it brought about the necessary reconciliation; in this aspect, I am 100% satisfied with it. As ever, critique is always welcome.
