A Poem by CaSi

Free from passion and desire, you have stripped the thorns from the stem. ~BUDDHA


To Indulge,

Lose control,

To embrace a rush,

A passion undefined.

The body feels relief,

From the mind.

We like to believe it's strong.

But the Lord knows we're weak.

And the mind crumbles in every lie we speak.

Fighting battles,

Our body unravels,

Find peace like this, we like to believe.

If only I could feel free from these desires,

These passion that undertake me.

My body is only a place to reside.

My soul wants to break free from this Illusion,

We tend to call reality.

When we indulge,

We can't help but lose control,

Takin' a step to break our back,

No turning back that's a fact.

If I could free myself from these passion and desires,

I could rip the thorns from the stem of this rose.

I could see beauty in every pose.

If only I had no desire to indulge in such superficial ways,

The social content would write my dying days.

In every conversation I embrace to eliminate my passion.

No longer a disgarce or, a plague upon the human race.

My race would run long, the body not tired,and my mind would grow strong.

To indulge in that hit from a virgin bong,

These lines would mean nothing if I was stripped from the thorns.

No evil in beauty like a new born.

I would be reborn to a lifeless body my soul would be enlightened.

If I could break free from passion and desire.

Indulge in every toxic, feel every drop seep in to the blood,

Like a venom that kills as you drown in the flood.

A snake in the grass,I hope it's my last poison intake.

My desire to be baked, feel the sun burn my skin.

Maybe if I didn't care if I win.

Only the Good could eliminate my sin.

The lies that I wish to avoid,

Your beautiful voice inside this android.

I was free from desire 'til your voice pulled me back.

If only to set fire this passion inside,

A sin to indulge,

I feel it set in.

An powerhouse of a poem, very loaded from top to bottom. Very vivid but yet so surreal. Great piece.
