Alive As We Fade

Sometimes the moments of clarity bubble through and you can almost get it.
New smiles, or loved lips?
Time leaking by, snickering in the shade of the blade.
Nights blasting and the flesh alive.
Imagination, when strong, can flip the tables and roll back the skull.
If I had to put it simply, I’d have to say I do not know.
I can be ok with that as long as I can believe.
That there really isn’t an answer, a hope or an ending.
Just air, sun and dying meat.
I can almost hear the flies.

there's always hope honey and as for the make of it wot you will.
We all have the skills to decide our own fate, live out our dreams or fade into the darkness.
Don't choose to be a nobody, I'd miss you too much :)

Very nice! The clarity bubbles seem to be avoiding me today. But your poem helped.
