    Death is coming for me.
    Another mind has touched
    my mind this day.
    it spoke to me
    and it said thus:

    "Weary traveler of the mind,
    Do not fret any longer.
    He is coming to take your soul
    so that you may finally
    rest in peace."

    I do not know
    if I am ready to leave,
    I do not know
    if I believe.

    I rest my mind today
    fretting no longer
    as the voice had spoken.
    I wait, and I wait,
    yet nothing happens.

    Am I just crazy?
    I would like to hope not
    although the signs
    say I am.

    I speak of death
    and the end of the world.
    Few listen, none believe.
    Why do I speak then?
    If none will walk with me
    then I am destined to be alone
    forever.

    I long for love
    although it is not
    a top priority.

    Though when I see the light
    that love shines bright
    I fear it
    I run away
    For I do not wish to hurt
    anyone but myself.

    I writhe in pain
    but I have been in such pain
    for such a long time
    that I now enjoy it.

    No one can help me
    for I wish for none.
    But people continue to try
    in vain.

    When will it end?

    When, then, will I succumb to my dreams?

    I have waited many years for the future day that is to come.
    Whether it be at my hand, or anothers
    I will perish
    along with this world.
