Confessions of a Melancholic Dreamer

By Greta Gree All Rights Reserved ©

Poetry

Caged

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

Richard D. Cooper: I wish I could write poetry like this. It's clever because it also tells a story, too. I like the flow of it, the way sentences slip together as they should. Very good indeed. I have also started to read your others works, and will review them when finished. Keep going. Never stop.

LunasChild8: Greetings Earthling,This is a very beautiful poem that you have written, Steve Waldrop. The words you've used to describe the peaceful settings made your poem very pleasant to read. Thanks for sharing it here!

Rachel Baker: This book was totally an original ! It brought new ideas to ghosts and to people 's character's ( I won't say how because I'd be giving a bit of a spoiler ) . I would recommend this book to anyone who liked fantasy and a little bit of romance. Brilliant read !!!

Barbara Ivusic: I really loved this poem. Perfect use of imagery to outline the digital age. I loved the image of the olive branch and how it is posted for all to see but no one can touch it. Everything you describe is so true that it has become common knowledge yet no one acknowledges it anymore. I look forward...
