Death

Gradually, I feel my essence start to ebb

Watching blood gushing forth from my severed artery

Yet, I wonder, how I got caught up in this web

Enshrouding my kinsmen in grief and misery

But strange as it may seem, I feel no pain

To the contrary, I feel eerily calm and at peace

Staring fixedly at the pane that proved to be my life’s bane

Somehow wishing for the flow of blood to cease

With a smirk on its face, Death stood resolute

Knowing there is no escaping my fate

The certainty of my demise absolute

One last ditch effort at summoning faith

As I slip into eternal unconsciousness

Embracing the vast nothingness
