World of Sorrow  
A wilderness of bliss,
In this garden-world of pain, alive
A kiss revealed all this,
As my world of sorrow died
To howl and moan and hiss,
At the sex and greed we find
To pain I’ll not submit,
Becoming sight among the blind…

…A paradise of vice,
In this underworld of love, decayed
Scar me twice, a lover’s price,
The pure of heart must pay
Feed on greed and sacrifice,
Our union falls away
Mistrusted lust our sole device,
And the bringer of all pain

My favourite part and one I can relate to so much:

A paradise of vice,
In this underworld of love, decayed
Scar me twice, a lover’s price,
The pure of heart must pay


I really love the subtle rhyme scheme to this. It's soft to the ear as you read along.

Thank you. You know I actually wrote the two parts of this poem at two different time periods.
