Lists of littlest things

Gold and other pearls,
Diamond and edifice in the porch,
Estates and sleek cars
Just like flowers cut at sunrise 
Withered at sunset.

The beauty upon brows
And shoulders high of feats
They're the meandering roads,
Torns and pebbles
All adorning the surfaces. 

Titles or accolades,
Fames and praises,
Those things for which we go to war
Knowledge and wisdom,
Space and vacuum. 

The last time I went to the grave,
So were all buried-under the crimson earth,
And an epitaph reads:
The littlest things are what we die for....

Light and beautiful is all they see
But that is not all there is to it
If only they could look close enough......

The agony of losing you
Is like a broken china unfettered hopes
That sparked neons to my buds.

TULIPS

Slowly you begin to sprang
Like a woman yielding to her man
Your beauty is a bang!

Oh I love this life
Sorrowful harsh heartbreaking laziness all sort of
All and love it gives.
