The Space Between Seconds

Clocks stop and people perish.

In the space between seconds.

The Blessed rise with no goodbyes

While those on Earth skip straight through time

In the space between seconds.

The damned will stay, their souls decay

In the space between seconds.

Growth will cease and rot increase.

The world will sink beyond the brink

Of chaos seas and biting freeze.

The people there will cease to care

And plunge themselves into the void,

Their souls snuffed out and minds destroyed

In the space between seconds.

Then Earth returns, the stars as well.

The living skipped this empty Hell.

The world moves on, still unaware

That one day they may end up there,

In the space between seconds.
