Flames of Mortality

Flames of Mortality

A Poem by Nexus

 

The fires went out for your stairway to heaven
 
            What mostly remained was a blur
 
Nothing but fantasies, sewn afterwards out of grief
 
Blowing smoke
 
Rewriting nature.
 
The recognition of mortality was the rule of existence.
 
                              Serenity could be found in the vast indifference of the universe.
 
One day-and it won’t be long-we’re going to wake up and it is just going to be too late.

How true. It comes upon us so rapidly and most people miss the ride before the final stop. Good write.
