Random Poem:

Perilous Solvent
inc_reign

Red as blood that soothes the throat
 1
Of a thirsty man in solitude
 2
Poured on that transparent vile
 3
To quench the filthy lips
 4
 
 
Conveys mind into a new dimension
 5
Onto a realm full of gaiety and ecstasy
 6
A place where grame, wroth is abjure
 7
And laughter, frolicking has its paramount
 8
 
 
Empty bottles on the table is the agency
 9
To some who become frantic
 10
It could also be the salve to others
 11
Who abhor the pain of reality
 12
 
 
Every sip is lavish, worth a wealth
 13
A single dime spent could be precious
 14
To paupers who savor poverty
 15
But not to rich who savor glamour
 16
 
 
Scathe could be the product in the end
 17
Life might perish, ebb back to ashes
 18
The liquid toxic slowly invades your system
 19
Could be perilous to that gift of God
 20
 
 
Again and again, seems in vain
 21
Mesmerize by the abrupt joy it gives
 22
Entice by its eyeful appearance
 23
Though it is a perilous solvent….
 24
