A colorful being
Collapsing to shards of only blue and black
The broken pieces unable to move in their shattered beauty
Its eyes closed
With the remains of its soul and energy
From its dim fading light
It opens its eyes to see the world around it before descending into darkness
What it sees is not what it expects.. but somehow.. it is not surprised
It is surrounded..
Surrounded by shadows that all appear the same
All with plastered smiles
All with faint, soulless eyes
They begin speaking to the being as if they can see one of their own
Perfect in view
….. only then…
They had all begun to recite the same words
The same… damn… words
All in unison
They echo and the noise hurts
Its all it hears
Its all but a whisper
But to this being
Its a growing, piercing noise
Its so loud
It cant hear itself think
Its screaming out
Trying to be heard
Its not saying the same thing
Everything else stops and stares
Slowly.. very slowly..
The plastered smiles turn to angry faces.
Each one despising the otherworldly being
They move in.. preparing to dispose of that which never truly belonged
The being tried to move
Tried to piece itself back together
It tried to save itself…
But its strength fades..
Its breath hitches as it realizes this is the end
There is no going back
In the end..
Does it matter?
Why live in a world of soulless beings..
If only to become soulless like them?
The being closes its eyes in serene peace
It excepts its fate
Because in the end
It was able to die out without succumbing to them..
Without becoming The Same.
