7. Between Nothingness and Eternity

Barren of events,

Rich in pretensions

My earthly life.


My real name.

Wholly unto myself


I wrap no soul

In my embrace.

No mentor worthy

Of my calibre

Have I.

I am all alone

Between failure

And frustration.

I am the red thread

Between Nothingness

And Eternity.
