Headache Dreaming

Headache Dreaming

A Poem by Karina Longo
"

Another lyrics. I think the meaning behind them is quite clear, but then again, I always like you to feel free to have your own interpretation. :)

"

You make me feel so ugly inside

I could be sure I am a ghost.

Haunting sleepless nights

Look out the window, the haunted people

After all your torturing-talking

My silence makes a goddamn noise

 

Horses riding can I place a bet?

Killer debts making sure I won’t

Ever pass your moral tests

The revolution inside me is for free

And it’s all locked up

But when your aspirations turn into aspirins

You’re once again trapped into a headache dreaming

 

You say it’s time to change and I don’t even know

What time is it right now

The sun bursts coloring the world and burning heads

No wonder beauty and pain has always walked hand in hand

You want to be proud of me, but what has been made of you?

 

Nine to five, nice car, does it come with a smile too?

Hiding behind high standards how could I blame you?

Here I stand naked to what I’m yet to know

Facing the world, in the shadows, but facing the world

 

People laughing, pointing at me could they make a bet?

They say I’m a total failure

Yet I know I’m the best entertainment they ever had

The revolution inside me is still for free

But no one looks right through me

When our aspirations turn into aspirins

No one escapes of living a headache dreaming

 

Well I’m still learning, going round

Turning left, turning right,

I could be wrong but I’m still trying

More than papers

That's my life, in my own time

And you’re forever living your

Boring routine contract

This is awesome Karina and you know me I will give my interpretation....I refuse to live as a sheep, I will not conform. Yes, I am different but I am entertaining the world. You think I make noise, look at the world you are existing in, the pain, the ravages of society, there is your noise.

Intriguing title and poem, well written with kick-a*s lines like, "My silence makes a goddamn noise." Memorable.

This is very original and unusual. It stands out from the crowd. Your descriptions and ideas are really unique. I especially like the center verse "Nine to five....", this is really thoughtful, thought-provoking and vividly descriptive. "When our aspirations turn into aspirins, no one escapes of living a headache dreaming" - this is beautiful, has a lot of depth and insight, and is really unusual, capable of being an iconic couplet. Also, the final two lines are WOW! That's really powerful and a really definitive, unique, powerful ending that really drives the point home and rings in the reader's mind. I like how there is a sense of confusion, of jaggedness, in the composition of the poem, yet it does not lose it's overall cohesion and become too abstract or too energetic to overshadow the point. Great rhythm and structure, and the piece is punctuated by questions which keep pulling it back to the point, focus the reader, and break up the flow just enough to give the poem punch and emotional color. Excellent!

The meaning is vivid...you have written lines that cover the hurt and confusion set off by the deplorable schism relationships suffer from when something goes wrong in the communication, or interrelation...something somewhere turns inside out and all that is left is bereft of philosphy...

Very good work...

You went to many places with your words in this poem. When we get locked-up in job and life. We become cold and useless. Boring routine can make us wish to be in a better place. A powerful poem that open the doors to many new question. A excellent poem.
