And I Matter

I would like to die
kissing my other half
and after annihilation
leave behind
the spectrum of radiation--
on a velvet night.

I am mass and I am energy
and I am pain and I am joy;
I am the cascade of neurons,
a dance of light.
I matter while I'm living,
and I matter after ceasing.
Though I leave no speck of soul,

mere trajectories,
maybe a black hole of a heart,
certainly all this chatter,

and I'll matter til I won't.
inspired by hour-long presentation of antimatter.
