197. Five Elements

Fame, a sweet poison
Concocted by own thought
Standing on a reason
With long fears, fraught

Success, a strange fruit
Taking years of labor to bear
Yet lost in selfish pursuit
As a tree with nothing to share

Relationship, an illusion
Where black is same as white
All colors grey in presumption
From words read in dim light

Love, bipolar as beheld
A glue of bond when given
A termite when withheld
Thin edge between hell, heaven

Life, a bitter truth divine
From one struggle to another
A myth of gathered shine
Busted by a distance farther
