Someone Like Me

Strange how every word is uttered
With an undertone of thought
From the bittersweet past
To the bloody ended farce.
One which pierces the senses
And dwells within the soul
We part with our sad sighs
Hoping one day we will meet again
with sweet smiles.
When her burning cross appears before me!
I drink the venom which was in we!
To poison the monster weeds of sorrow,
It kills the spritely seeds of tomorrow.
All I have left is the bad seed
Devoid of all that is in good stead
O those rosy thorns of life,
Sharper than the sharpest knife!
Another day, another tomorrow
Yet another thought I could borrow!
The notion of another me!
Is something only I can see!
She walks and talks
In the garden of earthly delights
she stalks.
She doesn’t know that I exist
A virgin vision of strange radiance
Impossible to resist!
She is beautiful and I am not
In my ugliness there lives a beauty spot.
Perhaps one day she may recognise me,
But that day could spell the end of we.

We must be careful who we share a room with.

I am really anti-art and that might be pretentious but there’s pretence in every aspect of art.

    Terrific :) Your angst really is like the stony ground from which these delicate wildflowers sprout.. Ps, I am ugly too but I know there are these homeopatic relationships where its both cancelled out and pure beauty remains..

  • Ugliness is in the eye of the beholder Jimbo. Merci orso! xo

    Poetic mastery Annie! We all try and live up to the expectations of the media and society in general on how we should look and feel denying ourselves true happiness. But you’re beautiful as always!

  • Merci à mon Jovan beau et talentueux! xoxo

    the fictional world of the who is who
    pressurised to conform by the beauty industry
    a mask created turmoil is hidden from view
    the feminine version of the conflict between id and super ego
    that freud forgot to explore or even recognise
    beauty and the beast is within us us all somewhere
    complex psychology honestly and bravely explored annie

  • Merci à mon Charlie Horse jamais beau et poétique! xoxo

    …les mouches marks the spots dualities tattooed so we are not a forget-me-not doppelgänger metaphor…halls of mirrors mirroring the past as if tomorrow was right in your face mask to mask artifice…la mouche marks the spot…,“In my ugliness there lives a beauty spot.” applause…applause…

  • Mon miroir révèle mes moments de vérité et de sa laide parfois, mais au moins je suis conscient de qui je suis et ce que je fais à moi-même et aux autres. Je vous remercie Monsieur Montdragonfly. xoxo
