Mortality

black is the colour

red is the number

blue is the steel of the knife

lost is the answer

what is the question



gray is the smoke

orange is the glow

the smoke curls upwards

mortality is the answer

preservation is at stake



golden is the silence

orange is the colour

ripping the silence apart



crystal are the tears

raining down on the moment



lost is still the answer

the question remains uncertain

all that is certain

is mortality
