Truthful pretense

Truthful pretense

A Poem by Ana B.

Sweet darkness, timidly

play your ghostly notes

Of this unfinished symmetry,

As I live on borrowed quotes.

 

Tears of liquid sovereignty inside -

Forever unspoken tales…

Behind bogus happiness I hide

Chasing holographic trails…

 

And if the dead can dance

Why can’t I do it too?

Tempests of hollow romance

I have yet to subdue…

Seems a question to yourself.. an opening of Self, exposing doubts perhaps.. of finding who you are.. two halves of a coin.. maybe sadness, happiness.. I don't know, need read it again..

'Behind bogus happiness I hide
Chasing holographic trails…'

You write so smoothly, whether dark or light phrasing.. and in this there IS a dance movement, perhaps indicated by your beautiful ballerina.

Am gasping, tears in my eyes, what an extraordinary video.. beautiful... as are your words. Ana..

Gee
I've read all of the clever folks reviews and guess tis is a poem of longing. What impresses me most is the rhyming and effortless flow, oh, and the fact you have a far better grasp of Lizzies English than I ever will have

OOh that's lovely, melodic and dark. It's hot pot of all what's not and all that can be. Unfortunately they separate like oil to water, whatever can we add to 'mix to combine'. Very nicely done Ana X
