7777.7

I let it come 

I opened up my arms

and let it come 

It was no surprise 

to feel it there

there below my ribs 

an unexplained hunger 

of the purest kind

I let it

I welcomed it

I refused its longing 

Instead

I took it fully 

a dead weight 

within my arms 

pulled me back down

to it

to this

I let it come 

I opened up my arms 

begged for its approval 

and in the darkest

peak of night

I cried out for another 

only to realise 

there was no one left.
