Object above my head

The unworldly monolith

hangs above my head,

holds me in its grasp,

my thoughts seeping

out of all orifices.

Deadly is its power.

Powerless to resist.

Never a moment

reflecting on my moves,

hypnotised by its size,

stunned into silence

by its overwhelming density.

It contains all my hopes and fears,

my nightmares and dreams,

held captive in its bleak opacity.

I lie here prostrate

a worshipper to this deity.
