Kings among Cowards

We robbed sleep from scarecrows

And sold it to the dawn

In exchange for cigars rolled

In maps to forgotten treasures

And now they’ll be lost forever

We look at our palms

We connect the scars on our skin

Like a coat of constellations

Sigh, we are safe now

Absconding from our shadows,

Leaving them behind us

We hunted for true love

And paid in beauty

We’re vagabond salesmen,

We sell dreams

Festive, Jaded, broken,

We have them all!

Interesting... but did these traders who had set out to find true love find the love as it is promised? Like a utopian dream, no miseries, no sadness and an eternal sunshine?

@ Blasphemous Aesthete:
No they didn't....Love is a commodity for them...they are still deciding the perfect price....
They sell dreams just the way you like it... :))
