(#3/12): “Before Darkness”

Before I rage impotently against the dying light.

Before I scream incoherently as my gaolers drag me away.

Before my vision narrows inexorably to nothingness.

Before the last vestiges of acuity, clarity, and dignity disappear.

Before I kneel to the inevitable.

And shamble off into nothingness.


Before my time comes.


Let me see this world again.
