Immortality

I pass two milestones
every single year
of the beginnging and end
of my visit here
Though the latter
is a time still waiting
so undefined as of yet,so uncertain;
I still know I'll be smothered
someday, behind the precarious curtain

But I do often wonder
Is this life but a phase
of immortality
just a stepping stone
to a better becoming
Once beyond mortal mesh
what secret senses
might be foreign from this flesh
and what cycle of seasons
will be bestowed on them
in an afterlife?
For surely there must be senses
and seasons beyond
And where will my soul
be lodge anew

Are we all just specks--
little falling stars
that fall forever and ever
through eternity
changing and changing
forever being
and forever to become
these thoughts together
make my mind numb

Is this a dream
I'll be pinched someday
I'll perhaps scream
and then startled I'll awake
to some hideous face



 "...no single sound too rude
Upon thy slumber shall intrude,
Our thoughts, our souls- O God above!
In every deed shall mingle, love."
--Edgar Allan Poe (from Serenade)

A good poem with some interesting thoughts. Keep up the good work!

"Once beyond mortal mesh

might be foreign from this flesh"

A wonderful line, Poeminister, and overall an interesting piece. I like these "questioning" works.
