Whether the stars disintegrate
The earth spins off its axis
Thrown to the ends of space
A lifeless rock

Whether everything we say and do
All our passioned moments and rage
Collective burnt offerings like ashes
To gods that men have drawn and idolized

Whether my love is wasted or found wanting
Two steps back to watch the carnage begin
Our lives entangled in the strings we knot
Tighter like nooses around our necks
To drag us to the gates of Hades

If it be so
So be it
