MY SENSES DO NOT DECEIVE ME, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Like the light of a candle
Last Line: Compared with the name.
Subject(s): Hallucinations & Illusions


Like the light of a candle
Blown suddenly out,
I witness illusion,
And subsequent doubt.
Like a drop in the bucket
And liquid as flame,
Is the proof of enjoyment
Compared with the name.
