Black Hole

By: Esther Yu

A black hole, endlessly sucking you in

Like a deep, dark pit

Waiting for you to stumble and fall

To catch you with its heavy grasp

Dark ribbons strangle you with their icy grip

Unable to reach for air

A breath, out of sight

And shivering in the frigid frost

Fingers and toes numb

A tremulous body to time

Desperately crying for anyone, anything

As you are entangled

In the depths of anxiousness
