Solace of Night
My body falls with an arbitrary grace.
Mother night enfolds me in her black embrace.
Peace flows through me,
As my mind slowly becomes more aware
How this happened,
God only knows
What is this single, solitary hole,
that pierces my heart
and leaves me blithe with delight.
Time slows down
and I see the smallest of details
even as my life quickly fails
It make no sense
Then suddenly, panic sets in.
I see the red,
The nectar of being,
sliding down my chest in this dream
But is it really
What is becoming of me now
My eyes widen
and once again reality returns
The hole in my chest now burns
The man's hand lowers,
his laughter bites me to the bone.
My decent quickens
The concrete floor seems to beckon me.
Then, light begins to gather in perfect harmony.
A path forms upward
I take a step, just as I hit the ground.
My body remains,
but my soul drifts forward
and I am greeted by a winged herald
He opens the gates
And I walk, into the Solace of Night.
