All the World a Stage

What is happiness but a beautiful act? on a tightrope strode alone feigning bravery flaunting its audience gifted talents lack? while time proceeds its merciless journey it’s senselessness never peering back? like in dreams lucidness its arts beauty confines self heedlessly to thoughts forgotten whisked away in days languor like perfumes sweet lilac once a memory mirrored of youths reachy lusts but if not time whose candor trust, its essence humbles the stage the soul bares wounds exchanged for loves bribery rested in Promethean's casket his undying name until earth’s fate ignites its survival aflame…

Christopher Orman, Welcome to Poetry soup, I hope you enjoy the community. Here, you will find friendly poets who enjoy supporting one another. I myself, enjoy reading and commenting those who want to be read. The only time I give constructive criticism is when a poet desires it. However, if for some reason the poem is not my field I will guide you to someone who is more qualified than I. Stop by and read one of my poems if you like. My poems are not perfect, but I have a feeling you might like one. I encourage you to check out the contest page and read to receive comments. Tell me a little about your poetic skills if you like. It will be my pleasure to follow and read every poem you post from here on :) We are Lucky To Have you. Your New Poet Friend @-> LINDA <-@
