Hedonism

garden of earthly delights 3
Hedonism in the garden
have you ever entered into its gates
and what did you find there
a rose or two
or a thorn with razor edges
Was your flesh a sponge
for dopamine to flood
and when the flooding
receded
did you crave it more
and wish to stay entrenched
or did something ever
come over you like
a wave of energy
that started screaming loud
from within the wells
of your being
that said
this is not the path to love
for some delights
in the end
are briars
you fall down within
only to find
in due time
the berries there within
poison the spirit
and lead the soul astray
into an oblivion
ecstatic but never lasting
