Isolated In Time - Poem by Tony Avila Sampson

No rhythm, no rhyme,
death, sets you apart,
isolated in time,
when it's time to depart;

Darkest of all dark,
when life's abated,
why's death a question-mark?
Your flesh, isolated;

When the black hole's near,
and it pulls you in,
feel the dark cold fear,
you're on a downward spin,

and you can't get out,
in time, frozen be,
trust your prays, have no doubt,
and set your spirit free.

    'No rhythm, no rhyme,
    death, sets you apart,
    isolated in time, '

    the first three lines of this poem are quite profound to meditate upon, before the separation of 'when it's time to depart; ' with the finality of no choice developed in the pathos of the final lines.
