The dark has nestled
In every crevice
Of my bones

Pouring itself
Its cold heavy self
Like syrup
Replacing every ounce
Of marrow

And covering the mouth
Of my heart
With its hands
In the stillness

Flatlining
All I had to say
To write
To love

I am dark
The sun used to peek in these cracks
That now hold soot
And sorrow
