I Am In A Trance

I Am In A hypnotic State

I am in a place where I have know plans to escape

I see and feel as though I am dreaming

Some say I am sleeping or day dreaming

I say I am believing

I feel my heart race with pleasure

I have found one of the worlds greatest wonders

A true treasure that doesn't have to be buried

But discovered time and time again

For the riches flow easily and words cover every thought with great feeling and endless energy

I love how they are rearranged and constantly give new meaning

No matter how many times they have been used they are never outdated or obsolete

They do the opposite they become more valuable and priceless

I can talk on for hours what words mean to me

I rather write and let them tell their own story

I am confused

Are my thoughts being written or our my words taking on a life of their own

When each word hits the paper it seems like they come to life

They talk back to me and say tell me more

Maybe I am loosing it and it is my imagination has gone wild

But this is not the first time this has happened to me

Sometimes before I finish one line my words say that is not what I wanted to say

Try again rewrite me until you understand exactly what I am here trying to explain

Then I think why should I listen to you

You didn't exsist a moment ago

I gave you life and a sense of being

The words come right back with

You created me and now I am little miss independent

Then I wonder what is really going on

Are my eyes tired and have my words become blurry on paper and in my head

Then almost instantly another remark comes right back

Believe what you want to believe

I am here talking to you

So I wait patiently as I type

Some words come out fast and I have such a hard time tryng to catch up

They speak to me in a different voice other than my own

Very calm and clearly spoken with a little authority too

I know I am the only one awake in the house

But the words echo in my head with great certainty

Sometimes the conversation goes so fast I can't keep up

Other times it is slow and I feel like I am drifting along

Then if my wife calls to me as she awakes from her sleep

The voice becomes silent almost as if it is waiting for others to leave

Then a few minutes after talking to my wife and we have silence again

The words begin to flow

I am not scared but should I be

These words are all kinds of thoughts

Never distructive or causing any kind of harm

They are all positive in nature as if they were picked from a garden fresh and ripe

Then are as beautiful as the sunlight

They are as cool as a breeze off the water

Warm in a cold night fulfilling as soup that nurishes your body

As clear as a wndow just cleaned and sparkling in the light

Always special and rare as the best steak ever tasted

You might think I am jumping off the deep end here

But I can reassure you as the hair on your head

For I feel all my words and the voices that I hear

Are real

My only explanation is that I learned to hypnotize myself in an hypnotic trance

Where I feel so Grand like one of the best pianos ever made

So I share with you my love that you give me openly

Good Evening Dream On!

This is a very nice tribute to words and to your own imagination... I picked up something from a Japanese story that states 'words are alive'... from another, that one word can mean an infinite things depending on how it is said... what do you think? but I think that words choose one as much as one chooses them...

Take care

WOW! AWESOME hardly covers this. I really do get similar thoughts, you know. Sometimes my poems talk back to me and I have to change some words to keep them happy.

I loved this. Thank you.
