Delusion

Delusion

A Chapter by Dr. YumnaKay
"

Still raw. Ramblings of a raging mind...

"
Sometimes, falling in love with the feeling of being in love is what happens rather than actually being in love. 

Sometimes, the feeling of being in love is what feels good rather than the actual feeling of love. 

Or maybe it's just a warped up, garbled version of truth, love and lies... 

Maybe we're so used to living in a delusion that even reality seems bogus to our fake - accustomed eyes. 

Maybe it's all -- an illusion.

From Dune: Plots within plots within plots...

You know it's real, when YOU get real and they don't run.

Swirling and Twirling Words...like the Merry-Go-Round I refer to in Ode to Writer's Cafe Poets. This kind of talent was exactly what I was referring to.

And honey, I'd bow, but I was in a 4 car pile up first thing this morning, (no injuries and not MY fault!) and then my boss needed information that was no longer where I left/saved it and had to hunt like Sherlock for, and THEN I so professionally put into an Excel Spreadsheet for the convenience of the recipient - from 11:15 am to 3:30 p.m. I am tired, hangry, and I got a half o' bag of Double Stuffed Oreos waitin' that I can hear callin' me over the traffic outside my office.

Not rambling at all, my friend . . . I spent many of my best decades pursuing the "high" of falling in love. I threw away relationships like tissues, once the excitement turned to dull everyday. In your thought-provoking statement, the second line doesn't seem to have any distinction at all between the first & second aspects of the comparison. It could use a tiny tweak. Continue on my experimental friend (((HUGS)))

Yes, I like that line two better now *smile*
Life comes in waves, in dreams and illusions, and yes, in grand delusions. Who is to say what is real, what is true? Is it better for the soul to stare at barren stone or to see instead a palace of light? As for love, and all that happens with the fallen, your words shake us to wake, or perhaps to fall into a deeper sleep in order to flee the raging mind.

We can want something so much that we forego the usual checks and balances and convince ourselves we are what we arent (or are involved in what we are not). Consider placebos/faux-meds or other substances for instance. (People do exhibit drunkenness if they 'think' they are drinking alcohol).
Your poem throws up some really pertinent questions for lovers 'in love' or for those embarking on same.
One of my very favourite people once said to me that love was his 'favorite of all the mental illnesses'.

Aye, I have! Maybe even trying to master it too lol :p
At some point in our lives, all we can think are just maybes, we make our own philosophy and theories about life and our past and this is similar to it. I really liked this as it portrays confused state of mind which resembles the feeling of being in love.
