My black hole gravity waves poem

DARK

Dark in the dark where light has gone to die
like sharks they circle mate their teeth don’t shine
all appetite approach pull drag entwine
vastest of things that are the case. We try
to know through observation comprehend
no fact alone escapes to tell in clear
what’s done in darkness where things disappear
weigh down so heavy all that’s true must bend
And so we see where there can be no sight
awe looms and pulls the strings of real so tight
perhaps this is the image of our end
doom draws together binds distorts consumes.
As dead love eats us whole in dark sad rooms.

    I love the imagery and the sense that the poem itself is being compressed.

  3. Thank you. Your writing is a continual encouragement to me to feel more deeply, think more clearly and speak with more precision.
