Endlessness is 
        mine.  
    I am with my own skeleton 
        for an eternity.  

The brazen puppet 
    does not offer any conversation.  

It just is.  


I close my eyes and 

    inhabit a space I 
        have never known before. 

               Is this what I wanted? 

I seem to be crying somewhere 
    deep inside myself.  

Was I ready for this eternal peace?
