All is silent, all is done
Nothing cometh, nothing goeth,
All that’s left is the remnant of the aftermath
What once shone now ebbs to stone
Still and silent
Like life once vital and now suicidal
What was fleeting and buoyant
sinks and leaves a reeking taste
What is rotten and stowed behind a veneer
of what seemed clear
pleasures,
melts into the truth
of the uncouth.
It always was, is, and will be-
all that was ever left


The author's comments:
This piece of mine really sticks to my convictions and my faith; it points out that meaningless pleasures and fleeting bits of worldly joy leave only rotten emptiness in it's wake. Those things that seem all too good for the moment are really evil in disguise; the pretense will fall, and you will see what was really always there.
