One Last Dance

He lies awake,

Unfeeling, yet hurting,

Unseeing, but staring into the nothingness that surrounds him.

He remembers his mistakes,

He remembers his regrets,

And asks the dark to remain.

 

He lies awake,

Free and safe,

A smile on his lips, beaming through the nothingness around him.

He remembers his success,

He forgets what others said,

And forces the dark away.

 

He lies awake,

Trembling, but still,

Afraid, but reaching for the nothingness that’s bound him.

He awaits his demise,

He relives his loss,

And pleads the dark to let him stay.

 

He lies awake,

Relieved, but untrusting,

Abandoned by the nothingness that found him.

He remembers his mistakes,

He remembers his regrets,

And asks the dark for one last dance.
