I am eaten from the inside out
Down to nothing-liver, spleen, ego
Consumed by the dark fire that is She
Soon nothing will be left
Not fear or hate, not anxiety or love
Certainly not that love that is clinging,
For attention, for approval.
No, She is gnawing me down to negative space
Erasing all my memories, all my shame
All the things that made me.

Nothing remains but the pregnant pause
Ex nihilo, the fruitful emptiness
I spring forth
Emerging from a slit in the spacious sky
Nothing but glory, beautiful and terrible.
Being, not belonging.

Neither owning nor owned,
She has come to rule the world,
She has come to surpass it.
