Rick Elpers

Done What Was Not

So now death succumbs
To my thoughts wrapped
In loneliness
Not that time doesn't own me
As I stand on the precipice
Viewing the canyon of expectation
Shall I jump into the abyss
Clothed in hope
Secured with faith
Bound to belief
Knowing not a future
Existing moment to moment
Breathing the stale past
Exhaling in the present
Now where death beckons
Out ahead
Not fearing oblivion
Just remorseful
Of all that came before

    I love this poem, how dark, nostalgic and weighted it seems. Fantastic write!
