Blank

Blank

 The moment before dying

 That last breath

 Forty-two years in a single second

Fear

 Energies rush the fingertips

 Body goes numb

 There is nothing left but regret

Silence

 You see them standing there

 Nothing you can do

 They cry as you disappear from sight

Light

 Surrounds you like a blanket

 You choose acceptance

 Leaving nothing to chance in a new world

Lies

 Everything they taught you

 Illusions for the weak

 They’d never listen if you told them.

Life

 Better luck next time

 If there is a next time

 Back to square one
