Poison of the False Infinite


If reality is only an illusion
And angels dance on clouds
Misery loves a lovers company
Breaking hearts make no sound

When and if illusions fall
Eyes can see
Ears will hear
Grace is freely gifted

Destiny rights a sad lilting life
Hope is lifted on gentle wings
Drink deep the promised reality
Not the sweet poison of the false infinite
