Illusion of me

Illusion of me

A Poem by Revery
"

The need to express myself

"


I ache to splash my blood on the page,

to pour myself out, wonder, love and rage.
I am neatly put together, attempting perfect you see.
Few know the complex paradoxes of me.

Thank you so much for your compliment.
Poets do share themselves on the naked page, no doubt about it. Even fantasy poetry has a bit of the poet between the lines. The absurdities of life seem far more palpable when they are read in poetry. Good write here. Lydi**

I know I've commented on this before, haven't I? We are complex creatures.. Seeking perfection? Not I. I seek to continue to be a good person, enjoy and not waste a moment of this gift of life, and raise my children to be happy, self-assured, productive adults. If perfection is within that then so be it ;)
I love the first two lines of your poem the most - as that resonates to me as a writer.
Wonderful writing, my friend!

reality is full of paradoxes, quanta, the tiniest of things and the greatest of things, every human being is a million paradoxes, every one is interesting

Thank you Claire. I agree whole heartedly.
The paradox, I suppose is that you need to be put together to express anything coherent or meaningful even if the desire is just to let it all hang out. The first line expresses a real sense of yearning. I thought more could have gone into the second line of what you wanted to pour out while I also feel that epigrammatic neatness is what is being attempted even when 'rage' comes too quickly and too neatly.

I like this one a lot Revery. Glimpses shimmer in the written word, but to know completely takes volumes. Does the human body contain that much blood I wonder?
