hell (poem)

Wrote this at a poetry reading tonight.

hell is –
all time in a moment
but a moment of pain
it is –
everything in this one space
but this tiny space all there is
and –
it's all pain, it's all small
it's only you, and no use at all
hell.
hell's waiting,
hell's holding yourself together
when it's all you can do
hell is fear
inescapable
unmistakable lack of logic
hell is dying
constant dying
present tense
all there is
in fear of death is a moment of ever
lasting pain
and that
that's hell.
