The Centre of Nowhere

Head churning with confusion,
Thoughts a chaos

Death - 
Majestic and infinite
Among infernal stars
The deathless
Each day clouded somber wishes

Heart ripped from my chest,
Dread takes me

Life - 
Contemplated veiling
And concealing of memories
The lifeless
Each day balancing nightmare's edge

Eyes running thick with tears,
Visions fade

Love - 
My hand in yours
Started a storm at sunset
The loveless
Each day in silent emptiness

Emotions unbound,
Escaping everywhere
