Poetry By: Bazal Morani

Deep in a black hole where stars no longer shine bright

A pit of constant darkness with no sign of light

Where silence engulfs the spaceship with an eerie grace

Where there is no sign of life, not a single trace

The spaceship starts to tilt, rattle and shake

Red flashing lights and sirens, not a command it will take

Full shut down and silence once more

Can't get to the escape pods, can't even open a door

Crumbling the space ship starts wasting away

Bits and pieces simply floating with decay

Struggling to stay alive, climbing onto an odd shaped rock

But fall through a gaping hole, now you’re their livestock

Trapped in a cage to be poked and probed

Stripped of your spacesuit and left in a dome

Pricked with syringes filled with a strange substance

Held down by 10ft Monsters no room for resistance

Eyes start to get foggy as you start to lose sight

Can’t save yourself now with clamps and chains

No one could save you even if they came in with cranes

Now you will forever be

deep in a black hole where stars no longer shine bright

A pit of constant darkness with no sign of light

Alone in a cold cage where silence engulfs you with an eerie grace

Where there is no sign of escape, not a single trace

Tentacles will come grab at you as from within you a scream escapes

Now no one would ever recognize you, not with that dismembered face
