Waves
Crash against the rocks
Black water
Runs through my fingers
I can’t remember the sun anymore
I can’t remember feelings
I can’t remember
Anything.

The darkest tides pull me out to sea
Far from the island
Far from all I’ve known

The black has never been so vibrant.

I wail for the truth I’ve left
I cry for the lost
I scream
Begging it will wake me
Is this real?
This environment
So cold
So unforgiving
So damning.

Please let this end.
Please let this end.
PLEASE
let this
END.

I find myself washed up
On the rocks
Fighting my way
Among jagged boulders
Salty air grips my lungs
And my fears circle like vultures

I search for the sun.
Had I been away so long?

Determination
Oozes from my hands
I climb higher.
Faltering along the way
Hell bent to reach the summit
I climb higher.
Leaking sense
Blind to pain
I climb higher.
Red on onyx
Flesh on stone
I climb higher.

I reach the peak
Straining
I see everything.
             This rock
             Black water
                                  and nothing,

                                                                   forever.

I let myself
Fall.







The black has never been so vibrant.

Doctor WhoHurtling through time and space,
                                                     Can he ever find a place?
                                             Jumping forward to a brand new earth,
                                                Jumping back to an empty hearth.
                                             Forward again to see the Face of Boe,
                                                 Back in time to meet an old foe.
                                               He is pursued by an incessant fact,
                                              The likes of which he can't take back.
                                               His entire home, his people his soul,
                                               All gone, leaving him without a goal.
                                                   The last of the Time Wars,
                                                        The end of his kind,
                                                   He is trapped b
