Dilemma for the Millennia
The One once traversed the scorched desert sands
for a fortnight,
a test from his Father,
to dismiss Evil thrice
(the Holy Number)
I have traveled the path of Temptation only a few nights,
yet it seems I’ve had to deny the pleasures of Abomination tenfold
A tenuous strain upon my conscious mind
for Evil lurks behind every corner,
beneath every dream)
A toiled mind
it yearns for an ending
anything, to lessen the stress that is ripping it apart
Even a magician would fulfill my needs
for he could restore my torn newspaper to where it reads
Mi cerebro, mi corazón…both split in two
y necesito saber: ¿Que debo hacer?
Follow an unstable love,
a love wading the treacherous seas of the Arctic,
hoping for a return to homeostasis?
Or do I rekindle a flame that would replenish my mana,
spark my soul back to reality;
A relationship I’ve longed for, for so long?
The debate is constant, in my brain
haunting my thoughts
haunting my sleep
The maximum desire for a solution has been breached
Research being accumulated
Good deeds being tabulated
All so my once adamant heart can calculate an equation
to decipher what is right…
A love I thought would never dissipate
has been left overnight (over many a night)
in a glass without a cover
Evaporation steadily settling in
Is the glass half full or half empty?
Or (God-forbidding) has it disappeared to an even greater extent?
A fear has nestled in my body
Siento como si nuestro amor estaba contaminado,
unable to regain previous heights
But like Dwayne Carter I call upon the Lord
and hope ‘Everything Will Be Fine’
