Black Hole

By: Ria Banerjee

The nucleus is unstable-
each atom of my being breaks away,
breaks apart, micron by micron-
till it collapses.
Memories travel light years-
to steal a kiss,
to touch, to feel-
to wither away in that
touch and feel.
We are separated by forceful erasures in History.
We are held together by forces of gravity.
Caught in the whirlpool of
shrunken space-time,
I am sucked into a blinding darkness
from which light
has no escape, no respite.
My core is dismembered
and mutilated- brutal
forces of vector and velocity
hurl me into an abyss of the infinite
black hole.
