"R-U-in..."

"R-U-in..."

A Poem by Chris
"

The title says it all - doesn't it? Read slowly or fast - one word or many.

"

A title may say it all - whether read slow or fast, one word or many ...or even as the last.

 

“R-U-in…”

 

Are you “real” -

or a dream?

…a voice?

…or a theme…

 

Inside

 

Beside

 

- ‘tween my breaths

- behind my eyes

 

another of mere whisper?

 

- a life’s trap of dreams’

  “fondness” of wishes

- a wandering for …ends

 

Todays hints beckoning

…the draw of spun magyk,

a lure of will… a wisp

to be gone yet again?

 

A tomorrows’ tear

More an unforgiven “wish”

On unending stars - falling

and falling and

falling

far

…so… just beyond fingertips

 

…so near…so near…

 

so …paused

in …fear(?) …of…

 

What “closeness” is

dreamt-meant to be

when echoing over-and-over-and

over

through

me’s.

 

“R-U-in…?”

“R-U- in”? Hmmmmm....inside-outside-1-2-3-a game of life and imagination...Olde English “magyk” overlays this contemplative musing.. Exquisite language, form, flow, soliloquy style...”What closeness is dreamt-meant to be” -in Horatio’s philosophy or in the everyman’s. ”behind my eyes...are you real?”- that is the touching and brilliant question here. Each to their own answer. Superb write Chris.

Tulips seem so far away. But there are potted plants in the library window sill. I can touch those.
You danced on many topics and emotions.

I did like the above lines. The ghostly words made me think and believe. Thank you for sharing the amazing words and your thoughts.

I agree my friend. I liked this poem.
I'm really enjoying your writing style. You make excellent use of punctuation, pauses, and spacing. Really loved this one.

It is often a "texting" kind of now we live in...
The pondering wondering mind and the mysteries of the heart, mysteries of the soul and universe. And what if neither are real. Is this our dream or are we flowing in another's dream?

The word play is on... and the twists quite real. The Cheshire smiled over my shoulder then laughed.. read more
This seems sad Chris..
I take the title as "are you in" ?
not being sure what "in" IS.
In sync ? in mind? in heart ?
Intact ?..lol..
I am real, in dreams and even in waking moments
in sync ? probably not.. in mind, maybe..
in heart ... I hope so.
I want, I need.. I even breathe. so am I real ??
.. I may even have a heart, and a soul..
but who is there to see and know
that heart, that soul
that real IN me.
behind this screen.. this netted world being.

There you go again causing us to look with-in..
and realize the with-outs.

Life hurts, over and over again..
but just a little less
when shared.

Jazzy...♥
