An Escape

Poem By Shanto Armonde

Love is fleeting,
Yet broken hearts never mend...
Joy lasts but a moment in life,
But never dies from memory...

Misery is a cage,
Happiness is the escape...
Death is the end to pleasure.
Birth is the beginning of misery...

Dreams unlived keep us striving,
Dreams fulfilled signal our end...
Growing richer with wisdom every passing day
Robbed of life with the passing of every hour...

Heaven provides us with hope,
Just as hell reins our desires...
Happiness maybe ephemeral,
But so is our existence...! ! !

When you rise and kiss my craving lips,
Away reality slips...

Aegean Tears

Before spreads the pure sea-sight
Blue embraced by the dying sunlight

From this high cliff-edge I call
