"Void"


Caught in the quagmire

Unable to escape darkness

Slowly he is

Swallowed by the emptiness

A dark, empty void

The Japanese tanka is a thirty-one-syllable poem, traditionally written in a single unbroken line. A form of waka, Japanese song or verse, tanka translates as "short song," and is better known in its five-line, 5/7/5/7/7 syllable count form.
