black holesĀ 

“A black hole is a place in space where gravity pulls so much that even light can not get out. The gravity is so strong because matter has been squeezed into a tiny space. This can happen when a star is dying.

Because no light can get out, people can’t see black holes. They are invisible.” 

this is NASA’s official explanation of a black hole. 

silence is much like a black hole. 

in a small space inside ourselves is a quiet, pulling in everything we know.

eventually this quiet collapses and leaves us nothing, 

not even the memory of a hole. 

personally, I like to think of myself as fleshy Tupperware. 

sealing in freshness. 

hoping for rebirth. 

i am leftovers 

but I am left over. 

this is the kindness of repression. 

a sort of light that has found its way out of a black hole.
