Light Years Away
G ravitation non-existent, thrusters gone along with hope,
A ll we are in this great cosmos is but a speck in a microscope.
P anic long since has subsided resigned now to our waiting fate
I n our capsule, now our coffin, chance of rescue now too late.
N ebula and cosmic gasses cloud and shroud us as we pass,
G liding through the astral meadows of this heavenly spacial mass.
V elvet night, sepulchral darkness, punctuated with diamond stars,
O xygen now seriously depleted, only showing a couple of bars.
I ridescent lights exploding, peace and serenity, a soporific dream,
D own into the black hole's void, in space no one can hear you scream.
