pavane funéraire

the agony
and ecstasy
of life departing.

pain and peace
in tension.
in tandem.

push the pedals
together;
alone.

but push.

you feel alone now
but now is not forever

forever
is
not
now

Let everything happen to you: beauty and terror.
Just keep going. No feeling is final.

there is no final.

unless there is.

and then…

what?
