in theory
there is light

some have called it
golden or warm

you might wonder
why i have not seen it

which is a natural
question to ask

so let’s say
i live in a home

and the walls are
so black and thick

i find myself isolated
thus filling with ache

and let’s say this ache
is quite monster-like

spawning long tentacles
that entomb

my body like a mummy
cloaked in darkest night
