Emerald Abyss


Vacuum of space – Highness – vast emptiness, of nothingness


Written by Xavier Serrano


Its grasp tighter than zip ties, her kiss frees me 

Plaguing, altering, distorting my senses

I was shot into the cosmos as I

An astronaut with no helmet 

Gallivanted alongside lifeless debris

Thoughts with no form of fluidity multiplied

Mary Jane, where do we go next? 

She took my hand and brought me to the sun

Blissful orange passion blazed from the center

As the core oozed a honey pigment 


Mary’s hands sheltered me like giants leaves

She listens to me when I am depressed

Nothing compares to the sensation of our lips touching

Breathing in your warmth with each kiss

She’s the jealous kind, doesn’t like when we’re apart 

I orbit around her, clamped by her gravitational pull

She tells me i’m her favorite

As I glide amongst Saturn’s rings to chase after her

She’s running away, leaping further away as she burns

Taking on the ephemeral form of smoke


Reality seeped in as the pressure of a shooting star imploded in my chest

Jane was gone, one with the stars as she danced amongst the glittery backdrop

The rings of Saturn shrunk to tiny specks as I floated away

Submerging deeper into the emerald abyss 

The blaring silence of space pierced my ears 

Stars sang quiet tunes as they glistened light years away

Achieving the status of a flying stone, I float endlessly

Ravaging the cold, lifeless vacuum of unwanted solitude

Breaths shortening the deeper I go

I’ll be formless like you, Mary
