The Phantom

         The Phantom.
  "When I left for the 
    Afterlife, I loathe my 
    Life's illusory.

    I accepted the 'must' loath.
    Life's illusory.

    My Flair and Potential
    became vanity.
    Life's illusory.

    Isn't the essence of Life
    Life's illusory.

    When I'm now caught with 
    lust for immortality.
    Life's illusory.

    Alas!! Death, the truth of 
    eternity lies upon the    
    Life's illusory.

    I miss the decorum of my 
    Life's illusory.

    When I join the Humble 
    Fellows in the beyond,
    I'd miss the warmth of life.
    Life's illusory.

    I Sought for Immortality;
    then,I found Imperil Eternity.
    Life's illusory.
