I sweat an angst of present blackness.
Ebony chokes tight against my hurried heart.
Thoughts bitter bubble up breathe putrid ash
And drain a molten cornucopia.
I beg a remedy quells all taint of fears.
Pray darkness light relentless shines the Truth of them,
Shudders, shakes and spits out all the lies they cannot hide.
I pray quick comes the roaring stillness tells the dawn survives.
