A special poem about the world ending and what it means for those of us left behind.

-Darkness From Above-
by Keaton Foster

*Vignette5* *Vignette5* *Vignette5* *Vignette5* *Vignette5*


There is the sun
No longer above
There is the moon
Embracing its doom
There is the sky
Shattered wide
Broken across the back
Of every horizon to come
There is no day
Never again
Will there be night
In between is king
In between is everything
Darkness from above
Has fallen all around
The Holiest of Ghost
Has called his lemmings home
Back to the womb of creation
Leaving the rest of us
Within this damnation
Making us accept ideas
That we use to vehemently deny
If we had a chance
I’m sure some of us
Would decide otherwise
Weightless and unburdened
Meaningless and pointless
We have no complaints
Because all that we have
Is absolutely nothing
It is all that we could hope
And all that we can dread
We are no longer alive
Yet we have not really faced
Our ultimate end
Like the broken world
Like the shattered universe
We are somewhere in between
In an eternal state of wonderment
In a forever realm of obsoleteness
Darkness from above
Falling down and up
Creeping in and expanding out
Saturating our skin and bones
Evading all that we’ve ever known
There is the sun
No longer above
There is the moon
Embracing its doom
There is the sky
Shattered wide
Broken across the back
Of every horizon to come
We will have no part
In the resurrection
But a starring role
In this, our damnation
The Holiest of Ghost won’t forget
His will and ways are omnipotent
He needs not explain a thing
We will forever be left
With the choices made
Darkness from above
Permeating what’s left
Of our souls or lack thereof…
