The Merchant

Buying dreams
shredding 
confetti wishes
the Merchant sells 
a future 
the bloom of beauty and
desire,
eternity is fire
all are lead down his path
Selling themselves easily
because of his 
deceit 
his darkness a retreat
no regrets
merchant calls
sing song delight
the buyers 
their souls minute
left in ashes 
in wake of the merchants
pursuit.
