Mine The Gap


mine /min/
  • an excavation for extracting previously hidden items.
  • a type of bomb just below the surface.
  • an indication of personal ownership.
  • a gaping empty worthless hole in the ground full of precious value.



They entered my mines today
and found an emptiness

so great it was full
so still it was unsettled

They'd been there before
but always ran

like a tribal warning
these caves are cursed

At the bottom is a pool of dryness
a wet ring of parched lips

The lips speak a silent song
so loud you hear nothing at all

the truth lies in that ring
and the lies ring true

And the light is so bright you are blind
And the dark is so dark, you can't hide

cheering him on
Estatic when he stands defiant,
wild with abandon when he's gone

just stay alive.
do whatever you need to.
you are worth it.
