Is This Eternity?
The pen hits the paper
Scribbling poisoned names
Is this eternity?
My mind skips to later
Into my unplayed games
Is this eternity?
One thousand eyes stare forth
Sparkling with joyful tears
Is this eternity?
My hopes gradually morph
Into frightening fears
Is this eternity?
Engulfed in purity
White satin so spotless
Is this eternity?
I curse my vanity
And feel all too helpless
Is this eternity?
Connected by gleaming
Bands of priceless riches
Is this eternity?
My finger is screaming
In all sorts of pitches
Is this eternity?
Surrounded by our friends
To whom we are truthful
Is this eternity?
With a trust that knows ends
When honesty's painful
Is this eternity?
Our long fragrant future
With dawn and dusk closes
Is this eternity?
Is but scented with myrrh
And not with soft pink roses
