Beyond Reality

Clueless to advances

Weeping corners

Lie below



Stirring sharp


A pin twisting


Taking the power

That is


Making it


A coward you are

If only

To try

Your false face

Makes me laugh

Some others

Might cry

I see through you

In disgust

I watch your weakness

Creeping slowly

Disturbing me

In my sleep

Oh how you


You wear

A disguise

You are the wolf

In sheep's clothing

Waiting to pounce

To suck dry

You will lie

Cheat and steal

Nothing surprises me

Some may think it's

Beyond reality

To me

It's how you


So when you

Come close

Ah ah

Do not touch

Hearts don't

Grow fond

Of those you

Want to chop up

And eat

You're hateful sense

I despise the most

Everything you do is

So cheap

So next time

You say

Come a little


My dear

Give this a try

Be prepared

For those who

Know you

To say

Wow...I guess you told that person to "go" or "leave me alone" in no uncertain terms! As Princess said, this is a powerful use of words and imagery!

Wow Caroline ! I remembered the snake lol. Is this the answer? You have captured a zone and you have captured it well I almost see you in a one woman play of sorts. This is great and flowing nicely from great feelings.

For those who know you

To say goodbye

Those pics remind me of a movie I saw many years ago called Scanners.

There you said it.

@ Peggy thank you for your kind words and for reading!

@ Thank you Ruby! You are awesome!

@ Michael LOL thank you! That is a wonderful compliment. Always a pleasure.

@ Sky LOL this is the answer to any snake. Thank you for your comment. I am glad you liked this one. It seems the times I write with raw emotion, the writing comes out great. I think I saw that movie sounds familiar. Great pix right? I loved them when I saw them too. Till we write again.

@ Thank you very much Dexter. Always great to see you!

Caroline, The pen is mightier than the sword! Every emotion which you tackle, you express it fully! All snakes should cringe at these words, which serve as a clear mirror of those twisted serpentine minds.


Kind regards, Stessily

Very, very, interesting pictures to illustrate your moving poetry, Caroline. And that pretty smile in your newest profile picture tells me you've moved far beyond what prompted this poetry.

Wise choices need not still voices; just change the topic to the realities of real love and mutual, deep commitment.
