this too

lean into the darkness

mold your body

to every crevice

of the gaping chasm

into which you’ve fallen

until you are secure

in the knowledge

that you are not trapped

in some bottomless pit

the sky has not fallen

it is merely hiding

behind an atlas of dark clouds

and like all storms

this too will pass
