Are you a mirage,
Or a dream,
Are you the cooling shadow of the moon,
Or the fiery kiss of the sun,

Your piercing kohl painted eyes,
Makes slaves of kings,
And crumbles empires,
With one glance,

Your throne,
Is made of the broken hearts,
Of your begging lovers,
That lay at your feet,

While your sensuous smile,
Grinds to dust,
The envious,
For even they are helpless at seeing you,

He is in love with you,
She is in love with you,
And I am the oasis that you secretly desire.

I thought this has many good images for someone who tortures others either intentionally or without being really mean.
I especially like the second stanza and especially the refrence to kohl.
Maybe you'd wish to enter this to one of the Neopoem contests.
Just a suggestion.
Well done!

Sounds like someone who is tormented by their feelings for multiple people even though they really would like to be with just one. Beautifully written.
