The Black Seeps Through

And that is why

I am here

Forks in veins

And Everything else

Gliding through

Dirty rain

All the same

Sanity unwillingly

Penetrates the brain

This circle ends

Like everything else

Infinity: a concept understood

Yet never taken seriously

Even these words

Will remain cloned

In some backwater hole

I own nothing

The blackness grasps
