Treasure Island

Sip of Wine!

Each sip of wine
Touch my heart with
tides of love
Keep on hitting me high and low
Like seashore longing to sip all the waves.

Each sip of wine
Passing thru my veins
Mingle with my blood
And sucking you inside my heart

Each sip of wine remind
Of ice cube that fell into my wine
splashed into your face
Kissing your lips.

Each sip of wine
Reminds me
Of the sweet revenge
You returned me with love.
And made my life horrible.

Each sip of wine
I think of the love we sipped together
Like the tides coming and sweeping
Us away into its heart of love.
It washed you away from me
And left me alone in the seashore
To enjoy the sip of wine all alone.

Sip by sip
I keep on enjoying wine
With you dear
You come near
With a glass of wine.
Its you who bring
Wine of love
Each sip of vine
I toast with you.

I keep on enjoying wine
Till i drop dead falling
To ground
With pains of love
You gave me
Leaving me alone
Going too far away.

I will keep on
Enjoying Wine
You come and suck
All my blood out of me!
Falling me drop dead forever!

    I really like this one. The repetition and parallelism are very effective, and I love the dark turn at the end. Great mix of positive and negative emotion, like a nice and well balanced glass of vino. (Report) Reply

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
