Certainty, doubt and finality

This harrowing trinity, is the family of symptoms that accompany death

They resonate with his arrival, amplifying as he draws ever closer, crying out

"I come for you, steel yourself, for none leave my presence."

Upon his arrival you feel your mind racing to answer as many questions as it can

As many as it can before it cannot answer any, for it will have all the answers it seeks

I find myself, with my back to the guise of a demon, and I feel this trinity envelop me

Certainty, doubt and finality

I am certain that death shall take me, I cannot slip from his grasp.

I am certain that the demon shall strike at me, and I shall be torn from this world

I am certain that I will join the many others, now lying at my feet

Join them in death

Join them in sorrow

Join them in certainty

This harrowing trinity, is the family of symptoms that accompany death

They resonate with his arrival, amplifying as he draws ever closer, crying out;

"I come for you, be at ease, for your suffering soon shall be at an end."

Certainty, doubt and finality

I now doubt what I believe, in death, do I truly rise to the gates of heaven?

I now doubt what I know, in life, did I truly do what was right?

I now doubt what I feel, in mind, do I deserve to be killed, have I done wrong?

Am I wrong?

Are they wrong?

Are we all wrong?

This harrowing trinity, is the family of symptoms that accompany death

They resonate with his arrival, amplifying as he draws ever closer, crying out;

"I come for you, you cannot doubt, that I have come for you."

Certainty, doubt and finality

Finality, I shall not walk again

Finality, I shall not speak again

Finality, I shall not think again

Immobile

Mute

Inactive

This harrowing trinity, is the family of symptoms that accompany death

They resonate with his arrival, amplifying as he draws ever closer, crying out;

"I come for you, you can only see the end, I shall be your eyes, I shall be your guide."

In my final moments, I doubt what I know, but I am certain this is the end

Near the end, all I see is the bodies of my late friends

Near the end, all I hear is the marching of ignorance behind me

Near the end, all I smell is the miasma of the corpses of those slaughtered

Near the end, all I feel is the burden of my own body

Near the end, all I taste is the cold rotten air

Near the end, all I know is the likeness of death

This harrowing trinity, is the family of symptoms that accompany death

They resonate with his arrival, amplifying as he draws ever closer, crying out;

"Not much farther, soon, you and all those dead, become equals."

Certainty, doubt and finality

"Lie down, be burdened no longer."

In the end all I see is Death's Trinity.

In the end all I hear is Death's Trinity.

In the end all I smell is Death's Trinity.

In the end all I feel is Death's Trinity.

In the end all I taste is Death's Trinity.

In the end, all I know is Death's Trinity.

In the end, I hear a loud bang as Death's Door seals itself shut behind me.

This is Death's Trinity; certainty, doubt and finality

It resonates with his departure, fading as he leaves, whispering to me;

"Rest in peace."
