"Life itself is a lie,
the sun will set,
the moon will rise,
even stars must die"

- Blake Normandin

Like Smaug on his golden throne,

or Night King on his of bone,

Gollum with his ring,

Pandora when she sings,


Human lusting,

never trusting,

longing for more,

ever more,


Solid gold,

perfect nose,

diamond glitters,

heart jitters,


forever disatified,

never tried,

time wasted,

tounge distasted,



The author's comments:

Selfish desires, everlonging more..... who will stop them?
