I succumb to the overwhelming shutdown
and my mind begins to slow as I realize
that the dreaded moment is upon me.
I try not to allow my last moments
to be incensed with pain,
and instead greet
the darkness
I reach longingly,
grasping onto precious life
just as one would gasp for air.
It is the end of my life's epic journey
and now it is time to rest under the shroud
of a blanket of stars and a journey I will never
