Have you ever stood at the edge of the world and stared into the eveloping darkness? Empty feeling, isn't it...

At the End of the World

?

Staring at the end with nothing more to see,

Strangely more fulfilling than anything else to me,

Every single thing but hopeless will I be,

When I stare at the end of the world…

?

If I know that nothing will be left to hold,

I will throw my cards and tell them that I fold,

My wings will wrap around me, protection from the cold,

As I stare at the end of the world…

?

Look from my perspective where there is no pain,

Only the ongoing darkness, and everlasting rain,

If you were not used to it, you’d think you were insane,

Come stare at the end of the world…

?

Everything that I have ever needed,

All things that would make one conceited,

Each and every warning left unheeded,

You’ll find me at the end of the world…

?

And now I bid you all goodnight,

As I leap forward and take flight,

Seemingly freefalling from this perilous height,

I welcome the end of the world…
