As dusk hits the last tombstone in the graveyard you can see the glistening reflections of past loved ones upon the silky marble surface of the monument fade away into time. As night takes away what's left of my humanity my heart races with that not of fear but of deep sorrow. For one day I to will be damned to this forsaken void. We fear what we can not see, but we come to see fear in our dieing days. We deny afterlife before the coming of our day of arbitration. We no not of what's in the afterlife, but we come to expect the best. As the lightning scatters into the dark and opaque sky, as the light grows dimmer the words on the monolith fade. As I stand to my feet and walk towards the gate I can hear the groans and wailing of the forlorned. I think to my self "a place where we do not want to go, but will come to rest. That is our fate".
