RHETORIC QUESTIONS


How long do the scars last,
How happy can the hurts be,
How sweet the dried up drops in eyes,
How far can blinded eyes see;

How long does an epoch last,
How happy the hedonistic hell can be,
How sweet the naked spices on the tongue,
How far these legs will take thee;

How long does orchestrated cacophony last,
How happy the haunted hearts can be,
How sweet the scent of rotten flowers,
How far this mind is going to be;

How long the lumpen faith can last,
How happy the humble sins can be,
How sweet the scalding contrition,
How far the prayer will follow thee?

Would be queens do not use sms lingua in a writers blog. If you are striving to be a writer, consider trashing it completely from your system.

Stop using it, not even in comment section.

As a queen I should ban sms lingua.

I think anyone following your blog sincerely gets some idea. And generally people ask a question to get to know something that they don't know already, so that is the reason I asked :)

It is up to you whether you want to reply or not. It is just that I was feeling a little bad since your blog posts disappeared almost immediately after I complimented you on your regularity.
