In the Hole

Just the threat gives me goosbumps;
A hot wave of sensation
Runs down my spine.
I shut my mouth; I hesitate.

 

The last time they put me down
There, I lost track of time.
When they released me back
Into population, they told me
It was four months later.

 

That last time, I found
Something that scared me;
An emptiness, a nothing, a zero.
And my mind gave up; I broke.
