Nothing will save us...
No, you read that wrong, It clearly say that Nothing will save us.
Oh, you'll see for yourself...

Nothing can get away
From the all consuming Emptiness.
Everyone born in the fray
Only to fear the looming heaviness.

As I lay in my worn knowledge,
Recalling the years and ages;
Going from a desperate forage,
To wielding electricity like mages.

There I came upon the lacking construct,
The simplicity of Nothing.
Now and forever thereon, banished were my problems.
But my mind was bluffing.

Vanished was the throne, on’t I glummed.
Broke and bind by the Empty.
I was met by Nothing, the salvation of everything.
For Nothing needed not to smoke nor to wind, nor even plenty.

It was him who needed nor wanted anything,
Oh how it was seeded ineffable,l
Being saved from the fate of everything
By its unconceded unity, its views untenable.

Gone was the logic, lost to the dark.
Trapped the soul and left it to die.
Forlorn hope was made host to a dreadful embark.
The body snapped, bones swept by the liar.
With nowhere to go, it crept higher,
Becoming engulfed in treacherous fire.

Life ceased with no desire.

Oh! It was creepy........ and dark................... I guess that's the the thing you wanted to show; 'The darkness of life'. By the way, the phrases were well rhyming.
~Nice, dark work!

Yes, it is meant to be creepy, but also 'Nothing' is meant to be a sort of entity that doesn't exist, that has never or will ever exist. And that the concept of not existing will save us from this Curs-ed life.
Hence 'Nothing will save us'
Thanks for noticing the rhymes, they were basically of the utmost importance, almost more so than the message of the poem. (I love rhyming)
