Apocalypse

by krstaten

I think I’d quite like for the world to end now.
With a bang or with a whimper, it makes no matter.
But if it’s all the same, I guess, I’d like to see a show.
One last chance to watch the lights while you hold me.
The resolution after the climax, we’ll never see.
Unless we were wrong all along about God.
If we were wrong about God, maybe he’ll grant us this.
We’ll watch it fade to black before we go.
Watch the stars flicker out one by one.
Or not.
We can just bask in the light while it lasts.
We can just see the crash.
Our secrets will go safely with the meteors.
Come, hold me.
What came before doesn’t have to matter.
I think I’d quite like for the world to end now.
