Illusions



This is another from Ramblings. I am trying to write something fresh for next week. Something not so dark. We will see.












Illusions


How can I sit here pretending.

When I really want to scream.

How can I fake it.

The thought to me is obscene.

The daily act of living,

is too much sometimes to bear.

Maybe I could just smile and nod.

Let them think I care.

I love this - the mask is a perfect accompaniment. Don't stop being dark - the world needs dark. It's like salt - you can always add it, but you can't take it away. (Too cryptic? Sorry - I don't really know what I mean either!)

I like the poem - and we all have moments when dark is the colour of choice. The image is spooky, though.

I appreciate the emotions expressed in this poem, a silent cry for help, well done
