The Green Lantern

As I walk into this den of lions,
hungry whores and liars lying,
green light shines upon my talons,
and I am where my kind belongs
For none can break this tie that binds us;
wicked, wretched weave inside us;
living, breathing, breeding virus,
and I am right within the wrong.

The Sirens sound, the dark surrounds me, 
Hounds of Hell, they maul and mount me.
Devils pour the whiskey down me,
drown me in their emerald sin.
Yet when I wake alone tomorrow,
poisoned by regret and sorrow,
deep in debt; no love to borrow,
it’s off to Hell I’m bound again.  

(...about a bar)

    Sophia it's a shame that you have not been here for a while. Missing your poetry.

    A masterpiece without flaw. I was totally absorbed in the rhythm and rhyme—not a word or syllable too few or too many. Gosh, this is good.

    an everyday story for some people, doesn't matter on which part you are, the few minutes of selfish joy and after that what's left is more emptiness then before. sorry again for... you know why...
