Oh!--the bliss we forsake when we
in chains
bind our happiness to pursue
the fleeting
of flighty things
the mirage contentment brings
corked in a bottle
shiny and new
a fragrance never before endued
a price
a purchaser’s paradise
oh!--what sacrifice--
a vapor here and soon
spend not your blood
your finite blood 
for when you bleed
your soul spills
never to be regained
