Wishing For This.. And Nothing More

There have been times in my life
I have wished for death
Longed for it
Wanted the comfort
Of needing or wanting nothing more
I imagine it to be a vast freedom
Something like the deep blue beauty
Of the never ending ocean
The dark cloak
Of the night sky
I imagine flying
At the speed of light
Flying through the universe
Being nothing
Needing nothing
Wanting nothing
I long for that place
Of quiet and solitude
Where I become
Like the soil that surrounds me
I wish for no casket
Just bind me in gauze
And fold me into the earth
If you wish
Burn me to ashes
I was burned many times
While I was still alive
Why not now
And scatter me
In some beautiful corner of the world
I will fly off with the wind
I will be nowhere
I will be everywhere
There have been times in my life
Where I have wished
For the silence and beauty
Of being nothing
Where ever dreams go when they die
Only to be reborn
Start a new life
