    Death was I
    To know death was to become it
    The bleakness, the depression
    So many have tried to add an idea to something of such gravity
    Death is nothing and everything, for all things die
    Suns, planets, bacteria, all are not before it
    Death is inevitable
    Death is great and perfect, unquestionable in its might
    let your minds whirl
    tongues lash out
    voices howl in terror at the nothingness
    the darkness
    for there is not moving in the darkness
    no shapeless mass, no consciousness of untold horror
    for even in such knowledge could the comfort of greater sensation be
    no, death is all and not, death is end and end alone
    no lighted tunnel, no friends or family waiting
    death holds the same for all, disconnection
    vastness of comprehension and yet so limited a scope
    death defines it all
    death is not a ghastly figure of black and bone
    nor a woman of pale skin and drab demeanor
    death is from beginning of and end of
    before time, before space and light, reality and cataclysm
    death is all there is
    let death take, the candle you believe you are does not burn brightly
    not in deaths wake
    all are snuffed out despite their courage or fear
    despite valor or depravity
    despite hatred or love
    despite warmth or cold
    all are the same, no judge, jury, only executioner
    death claims only what is and all are
    one death, one universe
    to all

    What dreams can come of nightmares
    hollowed halls and fiery eyes
    screeching tires and deathly falls
    of blood and bone and pain
    forever lost amongst the sea of the dead
    it burrows deep into the throat, trying
    trying ever so hard to make its nest in your soul
    across icey tundra, the frozen path
    across hell hot sand and asphalt
    across sky and water and space
    the greater beings and the lesser insect
    all devouring, the ever consuming
    let the hordes and masses ever reign
    death and life and pain

    There is no hope for that which can not be.


    In the ever night sky
    tiny lights burn and die
    vastness of the trillions screaming out against the black
    dust and rock, burning gas and ever growing nothing
    expand and collapse
    the greater depth of the never
    for even in the idea there is no day
    only forever night

    No, it's childishly simple babbling. Only Van Gogh could make beauty of the dark.

    yes but beauty is in the eye of the beholder my eyes sees much beauty in your
    childish babbling as you put it. No you have a way with words that depict an image an emotion of one that have suffered greatly You just make one see so much even in all that darkness you make one see.
