on disappearing

i enjoy disappearing
shutting off my phone
hiding my letters
locking my doors

turning off my eyes
i build labyrinthine worlds
and trace the depths of my mind
just deep enough so that i don't fall in

i dance with phantoms
to the drumbeat of my heart
occasionally interrupted
by the doorbell's call

if the ringing doesn't stop
i kiss the ghosts goodbye
and climb back out
into the void.
