Lessons learnt,
yet chattering lips lie restless.
Passion for painless pleasures,
yet pain permeates proud,
arrogantly bearing his teeth of incision.

In this murky derelict of decadence and desolation,
scratches a countenance of mistrust,
where drifting oars
slice Hope’s stream
and rasping rocks of a residual dream.
