So What?

I still fail to understand
why so many
can not speak of death
as if it was some plague
something to be denied and feared
with the utmost trepidation

But I will die
and in a casket I will lie
to be buried beneath the earth
and my flesh will decay
and rot
with time
my bones will crumble
into dust
and the memories
of me
will fade
until
there is nothing left
of me
in this world
and there is nothing for
me
afterward

the end
is probably
the end

so why all this morbid fear
of the inevitable
why stay silent
when silence is
our beautiful ending
to this lonely ride

Atheism is for idiots
and Christianity is for the hopeless
this spinning sphere
is for me

Despite all your
pleading
and scraping
clawing
and delaying
all your distractions
and assurances
as surely as you bleed
so you shall die

and in a coffin
you
will lay down
and your bones
will join your thoughts
in dust
beneath the earth
and the memories
of your life
will fade
with time
until there isn't a single
shard of evidence that you
ever were

the grim specter
of death will find you
and if emptiness
is all that follows
find beauty in it
as you do in life

The seconds pass:
like vines
they smother us
all
