What I'd miss if I were to die
6 months ago · · death,
As grim as the thought might be,
One day I will not walk the roads of this Earth,
Or witness the beauty of our cities and our oceans.
I will depart to the unknown destination that awaits us all,
fated to reveal itself only for those that dare to explore its depths.
No matter the extent of its divinity or relentless suffering,
I will forever miss the fragile thing that is being,
simply existing in the endless field of space,
awaiting the death of Apollo,
and the destruction of Artemis in his wake.
Despite death seeping in long before that takes place,
regret will lie deep within my heart,
as I will be violently ripped away,
from the laughter of my friends,
the chaos of my parents,
and the ridiculous act that is living.
There will always be songs,
that I would yearn to hear once more,
movies I wish I could see for the first time,
and unread books that I would long for.
While death may be peaceful,
and I am thankful yet fearful for its unwavering presence,
I will forever miss belonging to that which makes us human,
the collage of distant memories and people that takes form in our existence,
combining into the messy scrapbook that is our physicality.
The eventual supernova,
marks the end of such brilliance.
At least in this lifetime.
