A single inkling of black
Obliterates the silence
Forcing its way into every corner
Taking over the light of the room
As more and more spears of black
Pierce through the chaos
Darting one way then the other
Every drop of black hurries
To erase each ounce of white
There’s more black every moment
Appearing faster and faster until
They are no more.
All that stands before you is this
Black abyss of night
With no trace of what used to be.
You shake your head and wonder
How this could be true,
How who you once were had changed
From one extreme to the other.
Funny, that one inkling of darkness
Can take over the light
Before you can say one word:
