Lunatic

Lunatic

A Poem by Ana B.

Wake up, darling

From this life written on draft.

The eyes are starving

But the soul remains trapped…

 

And on this path towards demise

That we achingly call life

It’s hard to see through the disguise

Of sweet promise on the tip of the knife

 

That drips and forms the river

That lavishly feeds the illusion

Of this draft, lacking in rigor

Inevitably reaching the occlusion;

 

And then in the last second

I realize I should write sometimes, not just read…

There is no better weapon

Than to think you’re awake while deep asleep…

Beautiful photo and dangerous words. Most people walking on the edge. Rarely show true face till too late. I like the feel and the flow of the thought in the amazing poetry dear Ana.

Thank you a lot :)
Wow! That was beautiful it almost gave me goosebumps. The first line reminded me of a famous line, "Wake up, butterfly" It has a very strong impact and makes the reader wonder what life really is.
:) Nice writ :)

Thank you very much :)
the world is deep asleep...and when we wake up there will be little left of what we know now...much of the change is not for the better...but we are so unaware...many of us---and others are apathetic---as the Who sang "the change it had to come, we knew it all along"----
and this land will become a Wasteland of broken dreams and broken hearts.
