Treasure Island

Illision kiss


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

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
