Hades Bed

       – seen as nirvana –

Be of shame 
I wish to tell, 
As this being 
Known well,
Will naively
Court hell,
As he looks 
For a haven,
He’d be told
Was nirvana…
Yet would see
World in ashes,
Be a cause flee
Tho man made 
Accepts its hell,
From putrid air
To dried up well,
Shall be his fare
For a new dwell,
Found hades bed 
Did bid fare well, 
Per chance its stead
While meant nirvana,
Man turned to be but hell!

  1. Thank you, Roberta, for taking the time to say so and the pleasure of your interest. That being the substance which feeds poetry’s soul, and keeps we scribblers alive.

  2. You reminded me of my favourite quote by Sir Walter Scott (Ivanhoe) “He that does good, having the unlimited power to do evil, deserves praise not only for the good which he performs, but for the evil which he forbears.”
