The Dark Side

Won't be long now.

As life swiftly beats me senseless,

leaves me lying bloodied

and gaping open

and drains the breath from within' my lungs.

Each day is another misery carnival ride

taking me closer to the edge

of a blissful oblivion...

and all signs point to

the end of my long and tiring road.

Not too far off now,

the after-abyss awaits me,

calling to me in whispers of painless words,

'Come now, soon, it is time to depart.'

I answer...'going...Going...GONE'-at last.
