can't make her real

we are all mad here.
we are all mad here.


She lays under the golden sun.

I can't break through her imaginary shell.

She is lost in a fantasy.

I can't snap her in to reality.

She is lost in a day dream.

I can not wake her up.

I know the world can be so cold.

It still has its beautiful moments.

She is too intoxicated with the fictional world.

My love for her she will never know.

She Is lost in a fairy tale.

I can't rewrite the story.

She is lost in fiction.

I try to bring her into the world.

She is falling deeper.

Screaming, they are taking you down.

So far down...Suffocating.

I tried to make you real.

I'm lost in fantasy.

I can't make her real.

I am interpreting this at a few levels, Chrissie. In one level it could be the author or "voice" trying to reason with itself. At another level, it could be trying to reach someone very close and dear to the voice.

It's normal to refer to oneself in the third person. Napoleon and Julius Caesar did that. Your poems always make me think and they make sense, and that can be interesting if we are writing poetry to try and make sense out of something or a situation or relationship. Sometimes the world of fantasy can be a safer haven to some - than the world of reality. Thought-provoking as always. Great poetry as always! Cheers!

Mmmh, this is beautiful. I have been both. I have been the observer of this, seeing someone lost in the world of their own perceptions, who couldn't respond to me. And I have been the receiver, the person that others tried to "reach" and tried to "turn" or "persuade". I have that deja vu reading this. Sometimes the person realises and wakes up from it. Other times not. Yes, you make her real. It is too real not to be truth.

Got to rate you up now. You always make me think, Chrissie. Hope you write some poetry and a hub here again soon. Missing your Major Domo attitude on life in the hubs.

...well what is certainly real about this evocative piece of writing is that you have a real talent here!

And it dosen't get any more real than that!!!!

Reminds me for some reason about Kate Bush - and THE MAN WITH THE CHILD IN HIS EYES - she's a terrific songwriter and performer so that's quite a honor - if you're not familiar with her - go to You Tube and check her out.
