the obscure hall and its hollow walls

I am wandering around the obscure walls

of the sunken place

searching its oblique halls

and I can’t see past the darkness and the emptiness.

there is only hollowness.

I am alone,

frightened,

unable to fathom my surroundings.

It is as if the hollowness of this place

came to hollow me out.

It reverberates through me

and in currents I am

nothing and everything

– this oscillation is undoing me, irrevocably.
