i am infinitely heavy,
and astoundingly weightless.
i've been drifting for years now,
periscope down and eyes shut.
all those pains that broke me down..
compressed into a singularity inside me
distress enters but cannot return
from the edge of that event horizon.
i do hear the echos you make
from the outside
tiny metallic sounds of my name being called
sweep in like shallow waves against my skin..
i wish i were dead
then this numbness and inaccessability
would make sense..
a physical reason for my emotionless touch..
lifeless eyes make more sense
when the soul has left the body.
i consume and devour
poisons and radiowaves,
i radiate decay..
...i apologize for my
and evaporated essence.
