Becoming the Stranger

Becoming the stranger 
was my scheme from the start.
I shaped a design 
to appear as three circular layers of art - 
somewhat like a dartboard.
It is graphed like so:
  1. ravage the mind
  2. dismantle the heart
  3. and never forget where the margins do part
Without any doubt,
this is where I faltered:
Tapering out the claiming vista before me
does not make it dissipate,
and ironically enough,
running my fastest will not help me escape.

A cant cannot save me
from the faint pant of Hades.
Although I'm barely breathing,
His pale horse is beside me.
