Random Poem:


My heart is on the brink
I don't know the path to business
And your own religion
Turns me pale
When the moon sets
The pace for the game
Deserted fields
And the jewelry of dreams
You stop at nothing
To forget
Music rushes
Along your spine
Treacled letters
Must never see the light
Far from lunatic Sundays
An hour-glass spills
Far from veils and white roses
An embrace remains
