flurries fall into
my gaze, capture freeze; impale
sorrow – yesteryear

filled with promise and
burnished; quintessential dreams,
ebb through atmosphere

what is seen, and heard
drippings reveal the façade
yet, we all hold tight!

pretend life still flows
since, color exists in sight,
though it is decayed

(creating spectrals,
of illusions – desires of;
set reality)

  1. Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.

    Incredible piece of poem. I’ve missed reading you. 🙂

    Happy New years my friend. 🙂

    Say, do you have skype?

    • Hi Charlie, thank you!

      Excellent quote! This quote has whisked around in my brain from time to time. It makes me wonder about my own illusions (realities) that I have created. Are they good or bad or merely ways my brain helps me cope in situations. It seems at times we need our illusions and at other times we need them to be exposed. I suppose that is called the journey of our life? If I go into the path of thought that I feel my brain going, I feel I will be engulfed for the rest of the day. I-must-stop-now! Lol!

      I do have skype, but I am not the skyping type. It makes me very uncomfortable.
