did i suck this universe empty?

October 10, 2019


did i bleed it completely dry?
am i a black hole
a supernova-sized vacuum
am i sucking the world inside of me
leaving absolutely nothing behind
but dust and debris
and the vast empty space

i implode
and then i become the void
the nothingness between everything beautiful and bright
stars on stars on stars
on starting over

i would like a fresh start
a chance to make new mistakes
i would like a different life
one where i do not have to long
for Everything good
everything i should already have

where did my life go?
did i flush it down the drain?
or did it get sucked in with the rest
with everything else i have loved
and everything i have yet to lose
just like this universe
lost in my eyes.

    This piece is heartbreaking but beautiful and the emotions are palpable. This extended metaphor works perfectly!
