How to Escape From The Void

Stop trying to escape
Stay there
There is so much agony in the revelation
That you are the void
And so much power

Preen your glorious midnight feathers
Take a dip within your own murky depths
It goes on forever
So easy to get lost in the darkness
So put in a lamp or two
Get a comfy chair
Put up a picture of your mother

Get to know your void
until it starts to feel small
Until you’d run to the post office
Just as an excuse to get out
But still
Stay there
Do your nails
Read a book
If you run now
The void will only follow

So wait until the void is small
And you can hold it like a child
And press it to your heart
And promise it
that you will never try to leave again
