* The Enemy Within~*

Rating: 2.6

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

im reading a bit of Paradise Lost in your poem; but you neglected to extend to the future of hope; and the greates gift to mankind, God's love

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..
