The Silver Stairs!

by stupendous man

The unnerving silence, a truthful reminder

A vicarious love, now just a static noise

The spindle of time, woven by misery

Oh, time who shall wait for you and me?

Did the stars come out yet?

Of the blackened sky you’re staring at

Did the pain fade away? Are you someone else?

Someday when the light dies,

I’ll look him in the eye,

The devil, who is lesser than my vanity and pride

There’s no hell he could show me

That would ever satisfy my soul.

So when our time comes darling,

You take the silver stairs

I’ll walk into the fire unscathed, I shall finally¬†rest.
