I wrote this in 2005. My writing has come a long way since then.

In the Course of a Moment
And when the darkness comes
There will be no one to tell about your loneliness.
As the flicker slowly descends the wick
You realize the time fading.
Reminiscence invade the mind against your will.
The moment has arrived;
There is no one to share the void.
It will engulf your life force,
It will consume the depths of your soul.
Stand alert at that moment.
Look to the sky and know;
Know all you could not know and never will.
Let the passions of life burn,
Let them consume your last vision.
This is the anomaly.
This is the abyss.
Recall this moment you won’t remember or soon forget
And know that life is beautiful.
