On the Edge of Infinity: A Poem

I’ve written a poem to mark the occasion that The Edge of Infinity is back.

On the Edge of Infinity

Not from the beginning nor to the end of time

There is no time here

Not within any expanse of space

There is no matter here

—–

There is just an existence

A peace

A calm

A tranquillity

—–

This is the edge of everything

One step back into space

One step forward

Into nothingness

—–

But the universe expands

Creating noise out of calm

Creating chaos out of order

Encouraging the battle for life out of peace

—–

It is impossible to imagine an infinite time

It is impossible to imagine an infinite space

It is impossible to imagine an infinite nothingness

The total absence of space and time

—–

The rush of time’s arrow as it is sprung

Hits the invisible wall and falls down

A vertigo inducing sheer drop

This is the edge of infinity

  1. Absolutely wonderful relative statements. “Sprung” and the wall? Other than that, maybe a masterpiece. (holder) I was spellchecking.
