Oblivion

There is nothing left to say now.
Cherished dreams slip into nothingness
as they float away upon the sea of change
towards the far horizon, quietly surrendered,
beyond sight, beyond touch,
fading softly with the dying of the sun.

There is nothing left to say now.
Everything comes to an end,
and we all flounder in the darkness
like lost children with no hand to hold,
no place to go,
no new tomorrows.

There is nothing left to say now.
No more songs to sing, nor stories to tell,
no dawns, no sunsets in this new time,
as the light is forever extinguished,
and naught else remains
but oblivion …..

    Very well put; there truly does seem nothing left to say now.

    There is nothing left...
    You wrote comment for my poem Enough for This Life which has similar tones. You are right - many feel this way. Maybe everybody feels this way sometimes. Thank you.

    A peaceful and well considered poem not melancholy but instead with a calm resignation as the only true option against a superior and inevitable happening. Perhaps calm acceptance is the our best way to shut down. In my poem What reason for this mortal stand, I was considering life as being retired and then finally decommissioned. So many metaphors for our last day or days. In my poem Once we met. I was rolling through life reminiscing til the last line. It is a great topic that is infinite in its options and interpretations. Thank you.

    Very profound Val. Dignified resignation is all we have in the end.

    A well written poem Val. They can't all be pretty ones - that's life.

    Everything has submerged under the sea of oblivion. It seems you were in dejected mood so could write lovely dismal lines.
