Paradise and Dreams

by Dark Secrets   Sep 1, 2008

In the corner of Life's lens
Lies a vault unlocked to reality
Through minds illusive chamber
Comprehension beyond mortality

The combination of it's lock
Unknown to all the sorrows we hold
Interior blinded by serenity's light
Peace and happiness begin to unfold

Oblivious factual life disguised
For that, Brain is clear as glass
Spirit soars high with felicity
Body weighs a single hair of grass

Temptation creeps from every corner
Yet forbidden is the darkest soul
Thus temptation has no occupation
Existence, Being luxury's servant is it's role

Rivers of milk and honey shimmer
Pure wines, rich as golden streams
None found drunk, no over hanging
Scarlet fruits floating, juicy supremes

Fountains of wishing hold no coins
Dreams become reality, all is true
Minds forgetful to the horrid past
All is in the future, the sky is blue

Humanity's pride, immortality impossible
Erasing away dreams flying mountain high
Possibility of peace and happiness fade
Yet all is in the futures limit... past the sky

    I really like this one. I love reading poems that have a catchy title - this is obviously one. A great thing in this is that it alludes to life in Heaven. Stanza 5 illustrates that pretty well - almost direct descriptions from a certain book :)

    The balance of future potential and positivity tips the balance over what negative aspects there are in this piece. Very descriptive and paints a pretty vivid picture. Thanks for giving me something awesome to read! :)

    Utterly an exuberanting piece. To me this is a lovely description of the aftermath abode; Paradise. It reminds one of the exquisite blend of mesmeric joy and frolics moments in the garden of eternal comfort.; Paradise. Your deeds judges all, whether your qualified to be in the confines of the lush garden. Here, creativity of an intellectual talent is displayed with aptness. I'm puzzled at the way you match-make your lovely and exciting words. Keep them coming, your gift is remarkable. Mashallah dear, blessings. :-).
