Under the influence



So quite yet self reserved
in pleasures dome
the holy home all alone
one mind created
as the mirror reflects
his image of perfection
gazing into your own reflection
as the time ticks away second

love never will fade
while meetings arranged will be delayed
as long as you keep a smile
this life is worth while

dont ever pass on by
for your eyes should not see twice
the stranger who is wise
and never say good bye
for our regret
of what has been put in place
by the heavens palace
to watch the plays set
