I Crush Those I Love

I fear crushing no one
with my heart.
this is a venture on both our parts.

step forward
feel all this
viscera
brittle bone
blood like silken love
crushing in, pressed in, turned in
to a black hole
a single point where not even light can run from.

this is a venture on both our parts,
we are diving headfirst
twentyfirst
thirtyfirst
E V E N T H O R I Z O N

I am this supermassive black hole,
sucking up luminance because how do I make my own?
destroying all I touch
nothing but a burned out star
a ganglion of black light
my time has come, and gone.

but I do not fear it.
crushing, feeding, inhaling until there is nothing, no more
just secrets, and blackness, and everythingness
hidden inside me.
