Entropy - Poem by J. Stephen Keller

Pain is such a transient state, that it barely
causes me pause, but to kiss its royal cheek.

At once I realize my plight, and forget its
insistent hassle as I become one with the all.

Darkness as thick as a cave at night,
I reach out, and find oblivion lurking about.

Madness encroaches like a leech, sucking
my life's forces from my soul in indecision.

Left, or right it doesn't matter because I am
lost. Lost, and never to be found wanting.

Who Cares, is my name for the next eternity,
and I Don't is my lovely new bride.

The quiet stillness of the never ending void,
nothing, and nowhere do I stand, alone...
