This abyss, this lightless void
this abyss of world destroyed
this abyss, all deep, all wide
this abyss of being denied

 

Even in the darkest forest
Fireflies are flickering…but not in
this abyss of black increase
this abyss without surcease

 

Even in the deepest ocean
is a little moonlight…but not in
this abyss of night unbound;
this abyss without sound

 

Even in your bedroom shadows
There is something moving…but not in
This abyss, this all-below
This abyss; this death, this “no.”

–“This Abyss”by the Gothic Archies.

Hey, I won’t be checking this very often for a week or two but will get back to everyone after that.
