Poppy

~ Poppy ~

 

Poppy is no Angel,

for every 20 minutes*

a Lover succumbs

to her overpowering charms.

Rendered Breathless forever

as they dream of other places;

some chose an Escape from reality,

while for others it was a mistake.

Either way, Finality.

For them, and seventy others

the new Dawn tomorrow

will rise unseen.

Other Eyes will be moist

as they look on and ask, Why?

Why did Poppy do this to my child,

my lover, my friend?

Why did She lead them so far

down the road to Despair

and what did she offer

that Ensnared them so?
