They predicted it would end soon
One final boom to burn us all up.
I stood atop a cliff looking over the ocean as the sun set for the last time.
Its red glow lit the water
An ocean of blood lay before me.
I heard stories that it used to be yellow
That it used to be smaller.
But things have changed.
If it really is all going away now
There was no where else I’d rather be
And no one I’d rather be with besides
At least the end was beautiful.
At least we turned into something beautiful
Only to become a star once again
And become something beautiful
Even if it weren’t for very long
Before it all returned to
But this end was alright with me.
We held hands and watched for a while.
We didn’t say much.
There wasn’t much to be said.
We didn’t need to tell each other how we felt.
We both knew.
There was no anxiety.
Her grip tightened.
I turned to look at her and smiled.
Her beautiful face looked up at me
And she smiled back.
I leaned over and kissed her.
I couldn’t think about anything else
Just me and her
And when the sky flashed pink I told her I loved her
She began to reply
But we were already gone.
We were a beautiful cloud of gas.
We were sent out in a blaze of glory.
We were happy.
I woke up.
She lay asleep next to me
Beautiful as ever.
There wasn’t anywhere else I’d rather be.
Hey. I figured I'd post some of my older work from high school before I began posting new content. I think I wrote this in 2016? I've not properly written in a while, so my writing quality may be a bit sub par. Whoops. Either way, I'm interested to see how my older work compares to my new in terms of style and tone. I'll be the first to admit I was pretty severely depressed in high school, and my work from the time absolutely reflects that. Hope you guys enjoy, even if it is a bit emo. I promise my newer stuff won't be so... uhh... depressing.
