Picture Perfect

Picture Perfect

A Poem by Yann Bellemare
"

A short one on either soulmates or crushes, or basically, strangers who hit you deep down.

"
Is it possible to
Look inside your soul
I don't think it's possible to
Look inside her eyes
And feel numb

The pedestal is her throne
I have chosen her to be crowned
The avalanche of my thoughts
Crushed by the stones I used to 
Sculpt her

Maybe it's all lies and letters
Maybe that picture in my mind
A frame, perfectly cut
Is everything but
What truly is

Maybe "we" won't ever be
Something that can be named
Maybe we will always be
A ball, tied to a chain

I look inside the mirror
Inside my eyes and inside my soul
My soul reason to live
Seems to me dreadful
To bear the pain
Of being alone
Contemplate facts that prove
That no one will ever understand you.

Dream dreams of sharing intimacies
Of empathy
Of kisses and screams
Snap back to reality
Don't react
Your mind is playing you
Reels
Of tricks and schemes

You're out of breathe it seems
Relax and take one more while
To realize what still is
To realize what world you're really in

To realize what glove really fits

I really like you're style. The imagery in this piece was great... "The avalanche of my thoughts crushed by the stones I used to sculpt her" Great line!

wow! i really loved your use of both rhyme and free verse... i especially loved

Maybe "we" won't ever be
Something that can be named
Maybe we will always be
A ball, tied to a chain
