Status: Finished  |  Genre: Poetry  |  House: Booksie Classic

as the vapour evaporates and the view becomes clearer.

Breath drawn

Upon the moments of hesitation

In Panes of refinement

and periods of gestation.

Hold the hand of fortune

let it guide you to the gold

towards the fountain of pleasure

for each their equal measure

where even the sands of time Indulge.

Great word choice for the end. Any word other than indulge might have crushed this work.

Thank you. Where would we be without Indulgence?
