Illusions


Dreamless life;
Bleak as the dreariest night
Encloaked in illusions
Woven to be believed
By the weariest mind.

Life lived in shadows,
A farce believed in sorrow;
As the boat capsized
And hopes came tumbling into
The enraged sea.

Illusioned world,
A sightless one;
Like a blind's dream of beauty;
Beauty seen behind closed eyes.

Reality;
An illusion nonetheless,
As the reaper's face is unveiled
And darkness enshrouds all that lives

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
