Chasing Insignificance

like lava down the desolate mountain of my existence I seared and stripped all vestige of your presence burned it off felt it fall away like ash chasing insignificance I closed my eyes and the sallow desert sands sucked me down swallowed like a pill pumicing my memories I sank into the empty endless void chasing insignificance walled in by solid slabs of fear and stumbling silence I feel my way around my cell unconscious drained of hope blind deaf dumb numb chasing insignificance
