Paper tigers

Post by jabble524 » Tue Mar 09, 2010 7:04 am

Hello, my name is Jason, and this is something I wrote.

Paper tigers

(Part 1)
Romance awakens the unconscious
And in heartbreak it never sleeps
An insomnia of revelations
Shattered promises, we swore to keep

Paper tigers and Icarus wings
Fly to the sun, when the siren sings
Oedipus eyes to navigate the maze of
False bravado, caught in the minotaur’s gaze

Your Prometheus Kiss
Stole the fire from my heart
The eagle is my friend
But you tear me apart

Luscious lips and Freudian slips
Red herrings lead me into loving arms
Denial is the architect of illusion
On a night of cold truth

(Part 2)
Sullen eyes, stung by the sunrise
Crestfallen lovers, under ominous skies
We lost our immortality today
Nine lives withered, and faded away

Precious memories of passion and romance
Wrapped in beautifully decorated cocoons
Safe from the bitterness of regret
And from being devoured, by the cruelty of time

Leeches lurking in sultry eyes
They covet intensely, and rarely compromise
I want to hear it crackle, and smell the cinders
Incarnate illusions, behind benevolent smiles

(Part 3)
Exiled connoisseur, of forbidden pleasures
Scarlet letters carved in flesh
Exploring ancient catacombs of the unconscious
Searching for past lives and forgotten lovers
Scattered throughout the sands of time

Vanquished virtuoso, piecing together fragmented memories
And mysterious dreams, veiled in shadows
Channeling abstract and elusive sensations
To stimulate senses, no longer aroused
By the narrow spectrum of consciousness

Scavenging the obscure corners
Of the aficionado’s abandoned wasteland
Looking for the path to serenity
Tired legs and weary eyes wishing
To be home in your heart

The Paper Tiger thing made me think about the Anime ToraDora..They were surprised when the Americans entered with 300,000 troops, and collected other troops from around the world-5,000 from Pakistan, 5,000 from India, 5,000 from Bangladesh, 5,000 from Egypt, Senegal, and others like Saudi Arabia. The youth were surprised at the low morale of the American soldiers and realized more than before that the America soldiers are paper tigers. After a few blows, the Americans ran away in defeat.
