Jigsaw Minds Imprisoned By Memories

Jigsaw Minds Imprisoned By Memories

A Poem by Sweet & Tender Hooligan
"

Dreamers paint the world how they see it and not how it is... Insensitive monsters pollute the future and shackle our dreams.

"

Never ever had the heart to drift out to sea alone,
Never having the strength to not feel alone in crowds.

There's no escape from the prison of your mind.
All you want to be is different and unafraid,
All we have ever liked fails, dies or gets stolen.

Life's shackled dream of mountain walks.
Everything fails, everyone lies, everything dies
Only difference is how your mind is stitched together.

One of those days when jigsaw people can't be put back together.
Synchronised days drown your mind and make you wish the world away,
 The same way impregnated clouds bury pieces of the puzzle. 

Always something on our minds
I wish I could pollute your mind
(The way you pollute mine). 

Never once have we ever had the heart to leave the past behind,
Never having had the strength to step outside of ourselves.

Too sensitive to see any sense in belief,
Insensitivity of the past pollutes the future.
Negativity of time robs us blind.

What we feel can't make clouds part,
What we think can't stop the earth from trembling.
What you believe won't keep us safe from monsters
But nonetheless flowers will bloom again.

Sounds like two titles "Jigsaw Minds" or "Imprisoned by Memories"... of the two I like the first better :o) Just my piece in this puzzling post. Excellent wordcrafting! ~ wishing you laughter

I think the title could be shortened to Jigsaw Minds..it still has a hook to it..this is a thought provoking and sometimes profound piece..you inspire your reader to question and analyse perceptions that we hold..I really enjoyed this

I loved the lines "I wish I could pollute your mind/(The way you pollute mine)." I just thought that was a clever way of putting it and instantly gave off a strong image. This poem was really great, I really liked it.

our experiences definitely color our views of the world and unfortunately there are those who would feed on that. i like the way you ended the poem with a little bit of hope. This was a dark one for me, not a criticism though.

"What we feel can't make clouds part,
What we think can't stop the earth from trembling.
What you believe won't keep us safe from monsters

Unbelievably true and full of meaning.

Great piece, truly! It's true of what we would've wanted in life to become a reality, but i guess life throws us many curves that arent our fault sometimes. We all have many dreams that we wish would come true. For many, maybe only a handful had. Sometimes, all we have are our dreams to hold on to. Great piece :)
