Illision kiss Poem by sallam yassin


In a market
As this world
Of slave traders
Barely they can sell
Only your flesh
Merely save your soul for god
No; pleasure with whores
Not making any your thirst pass
But some then mourn illusion kiss
Where; every hope then in dust
Let then sell them
The flesh
And save your soul for god

    realm of thought fancied, selfishness that leads unto destruction
    No; pleasure with whores
    Not making any your thirst pass
    But some then mourn illusion kiss
    Where; every hope then in dust.....beautifully wreathed the words a message garland unto the humankind and minds (Report) Reply
