Into the Depths

I’m falling
over and around.

down, down, down.
Into the abyss
into the black.

A darkness
so complete
I don’t know
who I am anymore.

A shattered soul
A fractured heart
Aches in places
that I didn’t know
they could even hurt.

Rock bottom
only leaves up.
Yet still I fall,
over the next edge.

Sending hope in vain
into the nameless void;
Hope that I’ll recognise
the new battered
damaged, bruised
and cracked mess;

The mangled me,
when the fall ends
and all that’s left
is to find enough pieces
to put together
A façade of being whole.
