I Drink of Life

I drink of Life Of lavish beauty Consuming its fragility I drink of Death From which I flee And cheat with immortality I drink of pain Its utter grief And spew out my humanity I drink of time Of frozen bliss And Change’s continuity I drink of love And drag it deep For it is my serenity © Donna Golden; December 25, 2014

One thing that makes this so compelling is your method of starting each verse with 'I drink of'---- More please...
