We Are The Darkness – A Poem

Reaching out into the darkness, clutching at nothing,
The emptiness surrounds,
We are truly alone.

Together alone.
Tethered by the flatlands,
Never seeing, never touching,
A nebular of black.

Realization – now in the darkroom of existence,
No one is behind the curtain,
Eternities are spent craning our necks till they snap,
– then comprehending.

No one is out there,
No one is waiting,
Trapped in the shroud till death’s release!

We are the darkness.
