Slumber of Intoxication

A strange incense fills in,

Stars veiled by the cluster of clouds.

The roads that were to be taken,

Gradually gets cramped and dark.

 

A puff – to forget the past,

To erase all regrets

As it is slowly discharged.

 

A puff – ode to forgiveness

To forgive but to never forget,

A slight crack of sense.

 

A puff – to dream anew

As the foot lights up

A tiny firecracker falling apart.

 

A puff – held in gentry

To fathom why the tears roll down,

Ashes lingering in the heart must've been out.

 

A puff – to trade in

The slumber of intoxication,

A slice of life falls apart.
