The Phantom

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

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

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

    I miss the decorum of my 
    deity.
    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.
