A Poem by Lacuna Badtz

I am staying optimistic, and with that I can fly


Optimism fully engaged.

I’d love to love almost anything today.

Your delicate touch is what I desire.

The sensation of your kiss is something I need.

I can’t fall back to earth right now.

I am feeling like an angel

in a heaven like prison.

Ghost haunt me like my bitter past,

but I am staying positive,

and with that I can fly.

My memories instilled in picture frames

even now when I can’t remember a God damn thing.

Affection is a cycle, evaporates in the wind.

It falls back to me

through pounding rainfalls.

False happiness, in full throttle.

I can fake a smile and hide these tears.

In the absence of my mind

I see no pessimist in the mirror.

Yeah, Got it! You've got a passionate warm heart which needs to be loved! There's very few angels who're left optimistic in today's wicked world but am glad to read your this poem n it makes me feel that "NO!" Am wrong! There's still much angels in the world who're optimistic! I gotta build a perception to analyse ..o' I mean, to watch n of course, to love their beauty! lol

Keep up the great work!

This is a bit different from the others...
has depth and a reassurance...
keeping positive even when the chips are down...
and the reality check in the end...
as you look in the mirror...

You're most welcome
What a charming poem! I've not seen one expressing such a unique point of view. Often and many of the poems I've happened upon have been all about self pity, but this one is bittersweet. It seems to invoke a gladness, yet also shows an underlying turmoil. It flows rather decently, but mainly gets a thought and emotion across, and I think I can appreciate it!
Keep writing!
