|| Eternity ||

I heard this song again after a long time
And like in the past, it rose from the ashes
Like a wafting inviolate blue grey fume
In unraveling coils of wispy grey tresses
Turning its troubled heart inside out
Wringing out all the emptiness of space
It filled the void of the night with its own
It had no fragrance, no feel, nor any taste
It was sound, just pure sound distilled
From the blood that runs darkly in my veins
Who sang it, hiding in the obscurant night?
Why did she sing it, wanting to live again,
Unaware it would ring the death knell for me!

“I shall be born again, if you wait an eternity”
She sang, sounding the death knell for me.
