Dark Reflects

A dark abyss stares back

The depth is unknown 

Only wonder and confusion circle your mind

The wonderment of what awaits in the dark

Confusion of why we stand at the edge

It’s neither cold or hot 

No air or wind comes from the emptiness

An unease felt that curls my skin

Sound is lost in the darkness 

It’s unfamiliar and unwelcome

Light is swallowed and ineffective 

You will not find your mind if you stare too long at it

It stands ready to run away

Still, my feet are planted at the edge

The more I stare 

The more I want to jump in

It has me

I step forward to surrender to it

What’s on the other side

Day #74 SJD
