the end.


Drop the curtain let the show come to a close

The grand finale was so grandiose

This is an era coming to an end

The curtain falls and slowly we ascend

The tree casts a shade like a godsend

I rest beneath it joined by my best friend

The scars I now cover with my sweater

From a dark time but now I’m better

This is the end

Of an era

Now we ascend

On and on and on

This is the end

Of an era

Now we ascend

On and on and on

(repeat a few times)


After everything this is how it ends

Just too late to make amends

The blood in my veins run so cold

As I sink down past the threshold 

As I drown I scoff at the duality

Of self improvement while I question morality

As you take me into your embrace

You promise me you’re the saving grace

This is the end

Of an era

Now we ascend

On and on and on

This is the end

Of an era

Now we ascend

On and on and on

(repeat a few times)


(the end)

My hazel eyes stare forward into the earth that grows around us

The galaxy still swirling in your eyes

The white light behind us 

I look at the leaves clinging onto the branches, raindrops rolling off them

“It’s really nice” you say to the summation of my life, orchestrated in the trees and flowers that twist and sprout around us

“I’m scared” I reply. “I don’t know what lies ahead, but I don’t know if I’m able to take whatever happens next”

“Dont be.” you console. “I promise you, I’ll always be here for you and everything will be alright. And who knows, maybe things are getting better like you said”

The white light increases, growing closer to us

The vines continue to wrap around the ever growing trees as rain rolls down them.

The white light slowly closes in around us, until it surrounds us and there’s nothing left.

“Is this it?” I asked 

“No. This is whatever you want it to be” you say handing me a small sphere that reflects the galaxy. A magnitude of lights and stars swirling around in a beautiful harmony

The white light now turns to the galaxy, and the ground below us a segmented chunk of earth with a single, beautiful tree behind us. We both lay back against the massive tree, roots cradling us, as we stare at the gleaming stars, and float on and on and on.
