this is where death
passes through

this is the well
deep and full
holds the suspense
up to the brim

what comes next?

this is where death
falls into
the bones

tearing out
of the old
soft wet wings
red black and yellow

dreams of distilled
hope a tenuous
which could lead to
eternity’s sunrise

this is where death
holds a flame
of truth
and the moths
gather round
diving flight
to the end

this is where death
is the beginning
a new life
waits veiled
in destiny

this where death
brings light
of sight
quiet whispers

a secret unfolds
this is where I end
and this is where you begin
this is where you end
and this is where I begin
