Fear

 

Hidden deeply somewhere

In your inner space

Is a black hole

That keeps sucking in 

All the light 

From both within 

And without your

Whole selfhood, until 

You’re infused 

With darkness, with all the  

Negative influences flowing

Violently through your body

Trembling, vibrating with hell

 

As most recent research reveals, there is actually

No black hole in the outer space
