The Darkest Place

The days are long,
The nights are short,
And yet I find myself stuck,
In the night,

I should be gone,
But yet I'm here,
In everlasting darkness,

How do I explain this,
When i do not see or hear,
The darkness will consume,
But that is all but true,

How can you see?
When you cannot hear,
How can you hear?
When you cannot see,

These questions,
I will never know,
For the answers,
Are not yet learned,

From my heart,
The bottomless,
Black hole,
That will consume,

I write,
What I cannot see,
In the darkest hole,
That consumes me.

I can see lots of potential here in this young poet!
