Fade Into Black (Poem)


It's too convenient to lose track of time,

to watch it fade into black

while I try to grasp onto it,

not wanting to lose any precious moments.


All around black holes appear,

sucking us in while time stand still,

the southern winds push us more,

swept up by a storm

with the background fading into black.


All I wish is for the sun to appear,

so I do not waste any time up here,

waiting on the world to figure it out

as it fades into black for the millionth time.
