I see upon a hill,
the setting sun, fleeing from the night...
The moon coming above that horizon for the kill,
to rise and banish to darkness all light.

Though time brushes over creation,
I live on, a slave to immortality.
Though I was the choser of my own damnation,
Twas humanity that was the cause of my brutality.

Now the world around me decays,
unlike my flesh and mind...
Time has left my future in a haze,
and the changing world has been unkind.

I see upon a hill, but another slope downward,
where the pointless  journey continues on...
unto to no end is my existence forever moving forward
Nostalgia is dead, as my past is forever gone.
An immortal man basically stating: Immortality is overdosing on the gift of life.

Not sure about immortality but I would at least want to live for a few hundred years.

This poem is quite intriguing! I kind of see the Lord Himself looking on humanity after the seven years of tribulation is finished before He returns. Looking at the ship coming in, the picture looks like something from about late 19th century. Overall, well done!

I'm pretty sure Aivazovsky drew the image, you should credit him even though he is dead.
