Brandon Shane | Two Poems

darkness doesn’t scare me
so much as all the empty
space for the dead

after losing so many friends
tomorrow turns into a doubt
despite the doctor’s saying
everything is fine

my greatest fear
is that my mother is a ball
of energy floating somewhere
in the universe

and all that awaits us
is an eternity wandering
absence in the purest terms

and there will be a moment
where you and the person
you love most
are to touch fingers
but then drift
slowly apart

knowing in this void
you will never see
each other again


eventually you will forget
as did all the matter
around you

among the stars
next time
you look up
