* The Enemy Within~* - Poem by Eyan Desir

Flaming sea hungers
Germs of darkness drips
Desires fool fools

All who comes to its tree
Will surely eat
Whose soul will resist?

The juiciness of its beauty
Enslaves to many
Souls fall short of glory

Hungry demons laugh
Tear moist the pillows
I hate to love my sins!

    A very truthful poem, my friend
    reality is emphasized in your poem
    very symbolic and a piece to make us meditate and examine our conscience, ourselves
    on what we should ought to do in life...
    We as being just human....great write, my friend
    hope to read more works from you..
    thanks for everything, my friend..thanks for your poetry book..it's something for anybody to
    treasure forever..

    this is expressive..once we can't control the desires, it will lead to destructions, and if it kills our good minds, that is the enemy that kills ourself...nice my sweetheart..hope ur fine... (Report) Reply
