Last few moments to breathe and I`m about to die. Last few drops of bottle n I`m about to go mad. Few last attempts to sustain n I`ll break.... break myself up, up into half, and down into pieces. A few moments of silence n I`ll erupt,only to vanish forever.
I`m standing here since long and my feet tremble, my hands, cold n bare since ages, like a couple of useless over-growths, and my body, lifeless like a spirit. I can see, but all and all black clouds rising. I can feel nothing but thunder and smell nothing but grave. I can sense movement but all it holds is never-ending silence. Everything I know n yet I feel nothing. Just that I lay here, in the midst of all, in the midst of nowhere, in this universe, all alone. I try to cover myself, bt I fail. It wont matter anyway. Nobody knows I`m naked. The dark nakedness, that holds my dignity, my prestige, my glory.
They`ve seen me a lot yet they`ve seen nothing of me, and never will. My existence wont matter now, not to them, not to this world. Just a piece of rotten wood I am, rotten since long and still decaying. I`m a living curse, like an ugly black bug in the houses of bees n butterflies. A poor lifeless soul I am, so do they say, and so do I feel. A poor haunting spirit that holds nt an inch of space in this concrete. There`s nothing left of me and I`ve nothing to offer to this world, I never had any.
This is the naked truth that i`ve just discovered. So,I ignite myself up and enlighten. The smoke of my tears n glory rise up above my head while i lay here watching, burning..... smiling. Just a few moments more and I will rise, above this world and above all. These chains shall break n I shall untangle myself, to integrate n to rejoin. Just some more moments and I will disappear, to awaken, to feel.... to feel n to fly.
Its gloomy out here, tonight. They are laughing watching me suffer. But as the next morrow comes, the dawn will break n i will break free. The sun will rise and i will shine. Tomorrow..... I`m waiting. Tomorrow..... It WILL come. Yes it will... Just a few more moments and.......................................
