Blackness within blackness

She feels so lost. So empty, like a blank black canvass in a dark tunnel without end light, a black gaping hole in an eternal doom pit. Everything inside her is so dark. She couldn’t even see the end. Is there even an end? Or is where she’s standing an end already?

She is trying. She’s trying with all her might to find the edges of this darkness. As if this darkness is a page where she could just flip it over and be done with it.  Yet it doesn’t seem like that. Her hands are stretched in her front, ready for anything she could grab on—a support, a wall, just anything. A stumbling block is even better than this encompassing nothingness.

Yet there is nothing.

Her fingertips are numb with the coldness around her. Her mind is surprisingly blank.  And there is that haunting silence. Not even a white noise. And she is craving for noises, noises that would penetrate this blackness, noises that would aim at her heart, vibrate in her bones, and pierce her soul.

Yet there is nothing.

Just blackness.

She couldn’t feel herself anymore.

Her breathing is slowly fading.

She is slowly fading.

Sinking into darkness.

And before everything turns to nothing, she utters something beneath her breath. Words that are instantly lost in the darkness, lost before it could even reach anyone, or anything.

Then there is nothing.

    another lovely piece…
    if I may, blackness and nothing has everything, your imagination proved that…You…created art from nothing now…We…just experienced something more than blackness, so thank you

      Thank you. Blackness and tragedy always results into something…proving that in everything, even bad, something good can arise.
