Suspended Animation

Soul seized by a solemn stint of suspended animation

A slippery grip on reality, imprisoned in the vacuous void of

a invaluably voluntary isolation

Simultaneously holding life in the clasps of

awe endearing veneration

yet tormented by the clutch of my assured

abiding annihilation

Desperately attempting to surrender to the

inexorable impermanence of this earthly incarnation

and yet, I solely exist engulfed by the inescapability

of the cessation of sensation

Craving no more and no less than stimulation

to escape the tedium of this simulation

Evermore trapped in a timeless state of trepidation

Haphazardly fixated upon my imperturbable obliteration

Ephemeral Impermanence

The ephemeral essence of life fills my being with palpable

pain and ceaseless strife

Just as I am enraptured by the brevity of its brilliant beauty, I am burned by the

evanescent embers of its undoubtedly dying light

A flame that bears the illusion of burning ever so bright, while simultaneously

vanquishing from my very line of sight

Oh what a preciously perilous plight,

Here I rest and abide on the verge of existence, trembling amid the  suffocating clutch

of a dreadfully diminishing delight,

Impermanence, the invisible winds beneath a wingless bird that

irrevocably refuses to take flight

Fueled by the facade of a flame that never ignites, evermore a raging rejection of

existence that simply cannot be denied,

A walking corpse, shrouded in the fleeting facade

of being halfheartedly awake and alive

An eternal quarrel of the mind hinged upon a definitive demise, how ever can

life and death peaceably yet concurrently coincide?
