(3:00am) // Navila Nahid

Navila Nahid (@seasalt.rose) wrote a stunning piece inspired by the Issue IV teaser prompt ‘chthonic love’.

(3:00am) by Navila Nahid

3:00am

and we’re through

the veil

of midnight

and its portal tease;

 

3:00am

and we’re dirt

sifting through

the forgotten dark

of Erebus;

 

3:00am

and we’re falling

through the oblivion

of peace — it’s

not white light

and tunnel

but deprivation

of absence

and completion;

 

3:00am

and we’re dripping

into the sin

of folding corners into holy books;

 

3:00am

and we are time

and its honey-crawl

into the upside

down;

 

3:00am

and it’s you

and me,

deleted

and together,

together

and alone.
