Treasure Island

Noah Body


Eternity


Everything is cold, damp and gray
The oppressive dark a mere breath away

Restraining, drowning, dragging down
Viscously smothering every last sound

Tendrils choking, gagging, gasping for air
Dead eyes frozen in a thousand yard stare

Nullity, empty, no pain, not a single tear
The light, the dark all that's left to fear

Death fills all, not a single life's spark
Subsumed body and soul by the icy cold dark

Nothing is here and there's nothing ahead
Eternity is nothingness after you're dead

    Recently read a book, Why Is There Something Rather Than Nothing, in which the astrophysicist-writer proposes that, in the end, the universe will simple fade away, and we are lucky to live in such a time as to see the distant galaxies and understand that even the Big Bang occurred. Also we (if we make it at all, which I doubt) and any other beings out there will also simply fade away, and in the distant future will not even have stars in the sky to wonder over! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
