A tryst

Somber infinities
Versus
Legions of
Sempiternal
Blest,
Beatified
Moments together.
Entirety of being
Pitted against
Zeroed souls.
One question.
One answer.
The stakes, high.
Breath, bated.
We can take the risk and fall.
Or
Live with wasted souls.
Either ways, we lose.

  1. Doesn't sound like a very promising fate since either way you lose. Loved the imagery you evoked. Very poetic.
