Fulfillment in an Absurd World

Perturbed and distraught lay the newly wed
Solemnity unexpectedly enters the frame
An all seeing eye lurks beneath the creaky bed
Momentary glee transfigures into a shallow shame

While embedded in the ambiance
The hero's vision is dizzied
Mocked by the shadows jaunty taunts
To the room's new milieu
He is no longer privy
The fruits he has sought proceed to disavow

Ambitions scoff at the resulting outcome
For when the tragic scene culminates
The performers, ever eager to bow
Are greeted with a ghostly crowd

The actors, disillusioned when it is now their souls to take

But there is something enthralling in the modernity
In times anew, a bitter sweet actualization
A worldly induced nausea-of-the-moment
From the divine revelation of the absurdity
