Questioning this cryptic reality
A mystery of whats within
Known to those who've broken the surface
Acceptance of the journey of life

We are momentarily alive
Unknowing when our thoughts will end
A definite and doomed event

Deafened by the end of my persistent hold
Sensations with but fail to grow old
My place indefinite, no place left of reference
Am I supposed to die and leave existence?
Pressure building, expanding the core
More violent then ever before

The darkest matter can be seen at the center
Its density causing a fracture

Implosion of the voided
Corpse of the stars
Its remnants breathing in
A ghost inhales

A cold dark place
Beyond the horizon is
Erasing the matter
Into the nothingness
This is the way of all
Things in nature when
They meet their end
A cold dark place
The journey has begun
Into the nothingness
