As Hope Lay Undying


Drink deeply of this chalice red,
I've dubbed the color of regret.

It's filled to full of hope not dead-
To quench your thirst termed violet.

Eat this wafer, tinged forest green~
For envy now; what failed to last.

Your hunger-lust still yet unseen,
In blue-sky hue of this repast.

You dine on danger, what is done.
Torturing with pearly appeal.

For love is dead yet hope's still spun;
Fate's earthen curse is now revealed.

No closure when that spark of light
Beckons golden as morning's sun.

Demons are laughing in delight,
Since hope's blackened bane is now come.

Christopher - Christopher~
You light up the pages with the technicolor ink from your inkwell of delight.
I love this ... bet you knew I would !

Well, again - interesting springs to mind (but not in that bad way) - well crafted C.

***A hush fell over the crowd***
Amazed by the splendor of your talents.
You create a rainbow of colors within my monochomatic world.

You also gave me insight into your future....perhaps black and blue?? What do you think Michael???  

***And then the deafening roar of applause***

Whoooeee, ain't it the truth?  Pretty potent stuff there m'friend.     (purty colors...)

 May I never be too busy to help another's load,
Then I'll be drinking from the saucer 'cause my cup has overflowed.
