Quicksilver

darkness into darkness forms,
atoms swirl, congeal, and swarm,
the dark gets darker, blacker still,
folds in upon itself at will

a fluid, liquid, shifting shape,
a mass upon which shadows drape,
the black gets denser by degrees,
straining eyes attempt to see

deep, instinctive, primal fear
comprehends that evil's near,
slightly canine, haunches low,
it glides the way quicksilver flows

foundations cracked, beliefs erased,
just emptiness to take its place

    Knowing the battles you have been facing, I can only imagine the sense of dread that inspired this poem, Danielle. A powerful poem that engages the dark side of the reader's mind. Love, Carolyn
