1.
Life becomes crystalline at the end, Inside the form which unbinds Mortality clutching at what once was, as thought slips away All those moments lost in time Silence replaces laughter in memories of days gone by, All the while dying, howling, Clinging onto consciousness, without avail The flesh sobs as it unbinds, but the cries are quickly Ending with the last breath of the man Who lived to die, who lived to be reborn A man’s first death, but not destined to be his final The man who lived to die, and to be reborn
2.
Shrieking endlessly, but why? What awaits the world such that makes him scream He remembers dying, life snuffed out in a terrible instant Is this the world beyond, a punishment for crimes in life, Or is this the last moments before the soul separated from his body? Screaming on and on, but not understanding Initially broken, fragmented thinking, spinning useless circles Laments that fill the air with the unceasing will of instinct Patterns coming together fill a mind finally blossoming The world ahead of him is new, but his mind is not Talents learned, still retained, a second chance at life Repetition, a child, advancing quickly, taking everything, Let not the world pass him by
3.
Another violent death, estate snatched by senseless venery Puissance expressed by the edge of a blade Awakening, haunted, mind’s eye shrinking within the confinement of Another mortal host, too young for the ancient to pore on Another new world to be seen and explored; And yet Traumas accumulate, a gift given too freely becoming a curse Consciousness stretched by the burden of eons Peering about for fear of reprisal, an unnatural extension marking the wight Seeing black figures, scattered in crowds, stalking, No contact through being, but seen time and time again; Are they here, or just the reflection of lifetimes reaching the end? Dying again and again, death after death, unlife extending through infinity Broken by the ages, by cruelty, the infinite struggle of man Chipping away at happiness, pride, humanity Paranoia becomes paramount, and man becomes nothing
4.
I long for eternal sleep, one last rest, for eternity Please let me die, for the last time The unceasing arrow of junctures past, a wheel that spins forever Endlessness seems close at hand but draws no nearer As despair takes root in heart and unending starts crush the mind One asks himself how might it stop, as if seeking oblivion The shapes in the dark, the figures of despair, that follow the dreamer Seem the only constant, the path to truth Anger! Rage! Why are they here? What is the link to eternity? When can oblivion be found?
5.
Shapes in the crowd, lurking, spreading fear That only lives on in the mind of the fractured Forms, black, pursuing forever, life across life, Death after death Hatred fanned by the flames of insanity, and by the Desperate need for an end; The dreamer, awakened, conscious finally, A first draught of clarity after so very long Stalked no longer, pursuing the pursuers Power of the infinite, striking onwards, Revenge, pursuance, stalking the stalkers The end comes soon, in this world or another; An absolute end
6.
Fractured edge of the world, call to me A crossroad, waiting, is forgotten no longer Twilight eternal, sky’s visage set to wane The end of time, the end of existence, Sweet sunderance, welcome relief Clarity gives strength to reach beyond the veil To tear aside, and to reach inside Wisdom of a thousand ages, giving strength The crossroads must crumble, The gateway must close Shades of the damned seek mercy, And the gate upholds Pursuers in black, seekers of death, Guardians of the doorway to the end Wise protectors, hunting for closure, A man reborn with the power of ages Eternity is a second, stretched to many days, There are worlds other than these, But to seek them is folly, The gateway is closed again, And the dreamer is finally quiet
