99 – Blackness

It was sudden.
A loud noise,
The smell of
Burning rubber,
Sharp pain,
Blackness.

Who would have known
The absence of color
Could have so many shades?

Distant voices,
A sound
That could be my name,
Draws swirls
And obscure patterns
In the void.

“– Can you hear me?”

Yes,
I think so…
Am I thinking?
I’m not sure I am.
Is this what they call
Senseless?

“– Stay with me!”

Why?
Where am I going?
Where should I stay?
The blackness
Holds me closer,
Like a lover.

“– We’re loosing him!”

That’s funny.
I know I lost myself
A long while back.
Why wold you want
To find me?

“– CLEAR!”

It was sudden.
A loud noise,
The pungent smell
Of ozone,
An abrupt spasm,
Light?

The blackness folds away.
I slip out
Of it’s passionate embrace.
Not yet, my love.

Not yet.

“– Can you hear me?”

Yes.

I can.

Why did you bring me back?
