Into oblivion

January 17, 2018

The crucially compelling truth befell,
I could hear the siren-like consistency of the knell.
I couldn’t believe that my doom was in such close proximity,
I had lived with complete irresponsibility,
The people we knew, the people we are,
After such tedious years- the knowledge of that, still seems so unbelievably far.
In this last moment, I’m praying for God's benevolence,
Wondering if I’m worthy, as today, I try to see myself from a different lens.
I reflect back on my life before entering into oblivion, Memories of my hostility, with my loved ones, offers me no alleviation.
My life was not spent for a greater cause,
For today, i see how no one is here to give my wasteful years any applause.
In this final fleeting moment I’m buried in regret,
As I enter into eternal sleep ,
I can’t help but feel irrevocably upset.

“I held her close to me with my eyes closed, wondering if anything in my life had ever been this perfect and knowing at the same time that it hadn't. I was in love, and the feeling was even more wonderful than I ever imagined it could be.”
