The Void Thats Me....

A faint silhoutte in the evening sky,
I watch the wake of the jet, behind it fade,
Wonder why with life it isn't the same,
Why do the memories, the hurt, don't disintegrate,
Pale away, disappear,
As I ramble, mindless, into the dusk,
No sense of direction, no destination in mind,
Faltering footsteps, and a cold beating heart inside,
Every stone unknown to me, comes to life, taunting,
Painful reminders of all that has gone wrong,
Lurid tokens, of a tattered past,
It seems I have stepped over a threshold,
A demarcation between everything and nothingness,
I fall, free, into an abyss,
Life rushing past me, mocking,
Pushing me, aiding my plunge,
Plummeting into these depths,my feeble attempts,
At finding a hold, seem frail, a testimony to my will,
My soul knows, this trip to oblivion is one way,
Without an end,
Descend into this bottomless pit,
Where a helpless fall is all I can manage,
Maybe a few weak cries,
In stoic silence I witness the demise,
Of a rebel, a maverick,
As I give in to my fate,
And let go, drop into the void,
The void thats ME!
