Lost in Dreams

The radiance of morning spills forth,

The bitterness of darkness strangles the soul,

The joy of life soars through the atmosphere,

The venom of animosity coats the earth,

The kiss of an angel softens the face,

The reeking sensation of death hangs loosely on the shoulders,

The euphoria of love cloaks the body in gentle warmth,

The madness of hate pulsates through the blood like shards of ice,

The cadence of whispered nothings soothes the mind,

The proclamations of lies lashes at the being in rhythmic waves,

The longing for life strengthens by the moment,

The yearning for death ascends to its summit;

Captured in a dream,

Imprisoned in a nightmare.
