If I should die tonight, Show my soul the way to the moon, I don't want to hear choirs of angels, Nor the falling screams of Hell. I want the company of the stars, Both near and far beyond my dreams. Where the darkness can cradle my senses, Pushing me to the infinite nothingness that is everything. But tonight Death must wait, My body only wishes to sleep, To arise and face everything that is nothing, An existence pure and disgusting, A life and the light of a single star, Too bright to love and too warm to hide from. 2 April 2004 (RSA)
