The Folly Of Ages – Love leads to certain death –

“A fool who cursed the sun was surprised to see it still shining.” – Marty Rubin
“A thing can be true and still be desperate folly, Hazel.” 
 

The Snake who from the darkest pools pulls pain through the roots

A drink but not to quench a thirst that begins in hell’s stench
 
Proof that evil resides holding reign in deepest echoing halls
 
A coil from roses bloody innocence proclaimed through beauty
 
Lay it down at the cavern’s maw bringing creatures from the depths
 
Take compassion to tear it asunder from the veiled innocent breast
 
Inside is found the hideous heartbreak of lover’s scornfully betrayed
 
A harbinger of rapturous delusions reveals the folly of ages

Words. Deep thoughts. Eccentric. Madness. Lover. Dark. Music. Melancholic. Beaches. Addict. Primal. Curious. Dichotomy. Gemini. "I am a series of small victories and large defeats, and I am as amazed as any other that I have gotten from there to here." - Charles Bukowski "I think and think and 99 times I'm wrong. But on the 100th time, I'm right." - Einstein
