Attractive Distractions

like a magician's left hand
life is but a distraction,

light in it's many vibrant hues
can blind and mystify, it is
but a distraction for the dark
that lies within.

slits up a dancer's dress
expose the skin, for there is flesh to cover,
a painted smile on a clown's face,
hides a million cries.

lovely man!!
the painted smile hides the real laugh.. the skin n the flesh - man.. u got the bullet rite in this one :) sensuous.. when the dress slits up... watz there to cover.. is sumthing that has alwayz been on display.. the darkness is always below the lamp...
principle of duality n ur way of interpretation... the clowns laughing.. the paints hiding n... the allure of flesh :) hahaha... so u had more than ur share of vodka when this creation was born?? the honest gun fires a hard shell ... the heart bleeds coz the soul has sinned (now ahem! tatz not a confession... guess ur words have intoxicating effect !!)

I dont get it. If 'life's but a distraction', whats left?

Shadow Lor said...

lol, well, i'm not single. i'm also not male. does it make sense to hate my own gender? i identify more with guys than i do with girls. most females are backstabbing, loud, annoying ladies of the night. i hate 'em. i've only found a few who are nice.
