Hallucinations of love

Hallucinations of love

A Poem by Inkcognito

seriously?!...no idea where this came from, no idea where it's going...?


Beyond the borders of

silent comprehension

lies illusions of emotion

deeply embedded in a

fleshy soul triumphantly

ruled by an ever hungry heart

in stark contradiction to ominous

predictions of a weary lonely mind

when once again delirium seeps

through cracks in armor to offer

renewed ecstasy, sweet pain

delivered in syrupy concoctions

still craving the devil’s poison

a mighty drug, all the same

Still craving the devil's poison.. love this.. :)

It seems the more we analyze why we love, the deeper into it we become. I love this, the words seem to gently tumble into a love potion, makes me think of my own beloved, and why I love him so. Perhaps it is like an addiction. Great poem.. sparks the soul.

I loved the title, purely wonderful choice and your words here flow like a slow river, your thoughts just flow in such a beautiful way. It was always so hard to understand what Love is ... when two friends become lovers, I am always fascinating from the twist, when more and more feelings added until one day, you are in love.... other times, you only know how you love someone, just when he / she is gone , leaving a black hole in your sole ... Love is so hard to capture in words .... It’s the matching we all seek, for understanding, for comfort, for trust, for fun.... You need to have Hallucinations of love to understand , you are inside ... and there is no way out.
Thank you for who you are, it is such a wonderful poem, Yossi

Oh...what I think about it??? Lovely, love is but the ultimate high and the most desperate of addictions...when without, we are in our lowest of times...and when we hook up nothing is better!

that's the beauty of poetry, it has a mind of it's own..this is how I feel..love it

Kind of erotic in a mental way. Deep down it's certainly very dark.

This was very raunchy in my opinion, lol. But it was still very worth a read... Marvelous job, Inkognito... 100/100

the ink stains the paper,
blurring the words as they lay
between the line, in soft retort
the well to be filled another day..
