Such a sweet feeling of release.
The choice is made. Your life no longer yours
the clock’s tick as alien a sound
to ears that soon will hear the stars above.
Darkness can’t descend on me, just light.
Pure light. Light that sheds no clarity
it just cleanses my soul. A simple motion seeks
the peace. A single step. The world explodes
in colour. Feel the song wash through my bones.
Who knew black could be so warm. I feel
its velvet comfort wrap my soul as it weeps.
Weeps for the body it once owned.
Is it night now? I can’t tell. No.
I smell the morning sun. A memory?
