The Prime Imposters

Updated on February 17, 2014

The illusion of achievement

Imagery of gratification

Mischievous sentiment of pride

In the fellows consolation

Callous act of upliftment

And a fatal sense of bloom

Unseen future bereavement

Cloaked clouded doom




Camouflage of flying trajectory

Luring, the first imposter is victory



An idea of a fall

Searing seeping in the soul

Embarrassment among all

Smell of gloom is foul

Isolation of the mind

Desolation amid the blind

Broken hinges of destiny

Blunt knives of inner mutiny


A mist of invincible deceit

The second imposter is defeat

      From a comment you made on courage, I searched your profile and read of your return. I guess we have both been productively busy in our callings. More power to you and keep the flow flowing!
