And Now I Die

Silence quietening down,
blackness enveloping roun',
Fear penetrates skin,
more than enmity that diffuses out.

Emptiness aggravates...
deeper, further, darker,
I am but gone away...
Into the dying light of the twinkling stars...

Like them, I'm but a ball of fire
that's slowly dwindling in brightness,
as I devour myself...
to bring forth light,
that serves no purpose...
The nameless many,
forsaken, forgotten.
