Fell into a dark corner of my mind

Stunned of mind and fell
to a further place, not hell
a dream of sorts, don't tell
that I'm really not here

A metallic sky above
of steel panes
and wings unreal
there is no sun
there is no moon

These things that were
are long gone, destroyed

Instead there's an ocean
not quite empty
filled of a thing,
worst than a void

It's molten drifting
on mercury waves
no life no stars
just a kind of,
ashen smell

To drift,
or wander
or in stasis still
