I Have Come To Know Things

I Have Come To Know Things


The final frontier of my heart, coming closer.

The nameless thirst for life felt here.

No stars can die in this holy place.


It may seem as if I run alone,

my skin hot, but my bones starting to feel the cold,

but providence is commanding my eventual end,

and I have come to know things.


The last war, they say

will last one thousand years,

and I dream that if it happens in my lifetime,

you will summon all the angels,

and I will feel, each night,

your army closing around me

in order to protect.
