A Place So Dark

You are poison
Poison for my heart
In a way that no one can know
A god's betrayal so solemnly unfolds
In a place so dark there are no holes
Only blackness that unfolds and unfolds
Into sentiments untold
Buried deep beneath my pain, sorrow and desolate shame
Is this place so hollow 
even I
Fail, am siezed
Cease to exist
Across from me the danger of my weakness sits
Writhing, convulsing 
beneath the weight of this
My past, my desires, my values
leak from every orifice
