A word spoken without thought.

How good it would feel to live forever,

Without thinking of the consequences. 

You’d have to watch the world burn,

Watch as everyone you love dies.

Immortality would not be a blessing,

It would be a curse.


Watching seasons flit by,

The oceans rise and fall,

Yes, it would be beautiful,

But even death is beautiful.

To be alone forever,

Who would really want that?
