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

The author has managed to make me visualize the story like a movie. The two time frames of past and present are also so beautifu...

Laraine Smith: My only suggestion on the grammar is to use www.grammarcheck.net. I have it bookmarked on Google Chrome. I see myself in the determination in this beautiful story! I have Cerebral Palsy, and I have dreams that I have been working hard for, too! The humor made me laugh!
