End Games

Leading us on a path to darkness

Closing our eyes to the brightest, the fight is

To never be satisfied with life

I’ve never seen something taken so swiftly

As sweet breath consumed by hungry lungs

Can there be anything as precious

As the cavity in this seldom satisfied cage?

But we do not recognize the finality of time

Until it closes over us, wipes the tears

And from our eyes snatches the light

From souls too shallow to receive it anyway

Forever trapped in realms we can’t appreciate

The end game did not suddenly arise

From the shadows it has always been

Now that we are bleeding, it strikes

How much longer must writhe in agony

Before the course is run?

One thought on “End Games
