#109 (a hollow chasm)

the rats

were slaking their thirst

slurping slush

out of the gutters


I refrained from your crusade

hiding behind an indifferent mask

was a lifetime of cruelty


my heart

a hollow chasm

gloom filled the spaces

between misfiring neurons

setting sail on dirty waters

all my trust melted into

a dark puddle
