Lucy (in the sky with diamonds)

A Poem by eliasstone
"

the meaning possibly decoded with the suggested meaning added plus original words

"

Picture yourself above all confusion

your food is the earth, the trees and the skies

Suddenly someone calls you

you answer quite slowly

a girl with her all-seeing eyes

But worship the world as gigantic flowers

and the girl with the rainbow is gone

 

marriage so high clear as crystal

marriage so high clear as crystal

 

seduced by the thought of one girl in a billion

they fall for your soft words and ride

unable to see the filth of the water

everyone smiling in lies

The talk of the circle is you and your getting high

your ego's so huge now, youve lost her

the girl in the skies.

 

marriage so high clear as crystal

marriage so high clear as crystal

 

There is no limit to what is possible

It cannot be taken for granted this ride

She how she waits for you at the turnstile

-- how do you act and decide?

 

marriage so high clear as crystal

marriage so high clear as crystal

 

Original:

picture yourself on a boat on a river

with tangerine trees

and marmalade skies

suddenly someone calls you

you answer quite slowly

a girl with Kaleidoscope eyes

cellophane flowers of yellow and green

tower above your head

look for the girl with the sun in her eyes

and she's gone

lucy in the sky with diamonds

 

you follow her down to a bridge by a fountain

where rocking-horse people eat marshmellow pies

everyone smiles as you drift by the flowers

that grow so incredibly high

newspaper taxis appear on the shore

waiting to take you away

climb in the back with your head in the clouds

and your gone

lucy in the sky with diamonds

 

picture yourself in a train in a station

with plasticine porters with

looking-glass ties

suddenly someone appears at the

turnstile

the girl with kaleidoscope eyes

lucy in the sky with diamonds

I like poetry with emotion that makes me feel something, or tells a clear story using imagery and personification. I didn't feel anything here, and the story was vague to me. However, It has personification and is poetically written. I just wish I could feel something. I'm definately not saying this is poorly written, I'm saying it did nothing for ME.

The poem is written for people seeking the truth, and my only concern is it does something for them.

I seek the truth, actively.
