Uninhabitable Spaces

*Preface: I had a 24 hour period of depression over the weekend. I was with my girl friend and she asked what that felt like.

Black, empty,
Exponentially expansive.
Floating
Alone.
The centre:
Dark nebulae
Radiates around me.
Inescapable

Like Dante 
Through the gate stone:
“Lay down all hope
you who go in by me.”
Shadow images
Appear and fade
A phantom forest
Of diurnal things.

An apparition 
Appears,
Speaks,
But only
Muted static 
From its
Formless
Maw

The things
Disappear
Lost in total
Subjectivity
Separate
But indistinct,
Unfeeling–
Alienating

Virgil, Anchises, Teiresias,
Her voice wetted with blood,
Speak 

Voice cracks

Total silence. 
Vibrates 
the still void 
Of consciousness 
Like the om.
