Ebony Liquid

Ebony Liquid

A Poem by Silver Silence

one of my ol' favorites


Ebony liquid that seeps into my soul

Clogs reality and beckons me to shatter the glass that once was half full

Drips into my heart like open veins

Melting into my essence and the life it contains

Initiating mindless prejudice, fabricating doubt

Formulating this dew-drenched fog that intensely lurks about

Blockading me from 2-Dimensional fantasies

Lingers in my conscience like an unifectious disease

Ignorance, it beholds this as its guilty blame

Timeless shade of automatic oblivion without a name

Losing control when numbness utterly appears to be the norm

How it can feel so right when I'm in the midst of a storm?

Very powerful! The part about the liquid dripping into your heart conjures such a strong image.
