Timeless Dreams

Thanks to Lee Jeffries for the photograph.

who’s to say we’ll live forever
I’d like to meet that man and
shake his greasy palms
hear his tales of youth eternal
in which all is beautiful
never dull, drab, or painful
and always, always listless
sometimes truths taste bitter sweet

I’d ask how forever young would benifit
greater than the adventure of unknown
how could the same perpetuated
to infinite degrees
entice the world from reality
sometimes truths taste bitter sweet

the self inflicted darkness so many suffer from
grows a longer shadow with each honeyed word spoken
absorbed and resisted dutifully by each
more and more – fewer than few
soon we’ll all be lost in this idea?
sometimes truths taste bitter sweet
