Confessions of a Melancholic Dreamer

Once asked, you responded

All the if's and but's didn't matter

Afraid of your own shadow

You gave in

To my state of confusion

Like a bird in a cage

Squeezing your head through the metal bars

In illusion

One

Two

No, there's no three,

You say

I stare at you

You close your eyes

But I can still see your hands shaking

I made you

Made your perfectly shaped face

And eyes of sky blue colour

I created you like a masterpiece

From my delusion

Upon illusion you'd ask me

If you're real

I'd say you're not

You're my dreamy distraction

Perfect attraction

And I'm riding you like a wild beast rides its sanity

Gone in a cloud of judgement

Hovering above my fragility

And stability of mind

Like a mad scientist I laugh

Grotesquely

And vaguely push you back where you belong

In a cage with metal bars

You call it mind control

I call it insanity

jenneyescoto: I'm only six chapters in, yet I'm already hooked. It didn't start too slow nor too fast. It has just enough background information to keep the plot going in a decent pace. There are just some minor grammar mistakes and phrasing that could be easily corrected. Other than that, I'm really enjoying ...

graceeming: I thought the whole story form the beginning was captivating, it really gave you the hunger that you were longing for in a story. Yes the end was not something that I enjoyed, but I recommend this to anyone that enjoys fantasy of this type.
