Make Believe

These days I don’t even try
To write good poetry

Just feelings

Thoughts
Memories
Hopes
Dreams
Craziness
Helplessness
Painful recollections
Idiosyncratic behavioral paradigms

Need you ask?
As I ask?
Ask

Why I lay sleepless
Staring into the inevitable
No where seeking
Past forgotten memory

When the pain stopped
And healing began
I died somewhere
Stopped feeling
Caring

Just became
This shell of lonely
In someone else’s truth

Scrapped clean
Sterilised
Incarcerated

As I Slowly froze
Lost the inner fire
I became content
Content to wandering
Memory’s maze

Clarity that I lost

Incomplete

Until I discovered
Hidden behind
The realism
Of

You can’t go back

And forward
Is
