Vanity's Bonfire (+1)

Kurt Philip Behm

Trouble melts

in the fire of emergency

all reasons in ashes

—the moment ablaze


(Dreamsleep: July, 2021)



Fatal Glances


Every time you make a new friend,

I make a new enemy


Every time you swear that you won’t,

my world falls apart


Every time you say it’s the last,

my grief is reborn


Every time I look in your eyes

—the future is lost


(Dreamsleep: July, 2021)



Fading Mirage


A temporary truth

—fleeting denial


(Dreamsleep: June)

    This style is very interesting! I wonder what a "dreamsleep" is.
