The End of All Things

By Valerie Younes

sorrow never skipped a day without calling ecstasy
she was the one to absorb his sadness under the pouring rain
thunder cracked and it was the beginning of life without vain
he never knew that he’ll never be seeing remedy

months were ahead and he searched to find her nearby
little does he know that his little sunshine was sent home
maybe she can heal if she stayed a little longer in her womb
and this was the first time I’ve seen sorrow cry

no one was certain if he burned the path he walked for weeks
but what we knew was that his love for her was eternal
please sorrow don’t come back being nocturnal
her stamped kisses will fade away of your unwashed cheeks

he didn’t like the skin he lived in and decided to tear it apart
it was unbelievable to witness the end of all things
he had promised himself that he’ll die wearing those wedding rings
maybe their fingers will intertwine and stitch his heart

because sorrow was no longer filled with ecstasy ever since she’s gone
her absence took away his breath and left suffocation instead
at that moment he realized that he’s better off dead
one cannot live without sunshine, better bury him before dawn
