Drifting Off Into The Unknown

Updated on July 27, 2012

I am an artist, designer, photographer and writer. See more of my work on cmariearts.

What becomes reality

To space unknown

I'm drifting off to a world

Not my own

Sita will wait there

Upon her thrown

Chaste and ready

For me to be the perfect one

Mixed up dimensions

Swallow up beyond

Reality is miconstrewn

Waiting to become alive

It doesn't seem quite clear yet

We need to wait

Isn't it funny

How things come up late

I am building my dream

It takes much time and effort

Love it or hate it

It's mine to deliver

We are all born children

Innocent and sweet

Not all remain that way

Promises don't keep

Souls become entangled

Clever and wise may win

Their hearts though

Might be toiled up in sin

      Caroline, Interesting imagery, interesting thoughts, interesting image of airborne dandelion seeds, which all children know carry our wishes out into the world, where sometimes our dreams are realized and sometimes we think that they are not. Interesting reference to Sita, whose symbolism of purity contrasts effectively with the last line of hearts "toiled up in sin". Deep, Caroline, deep.

      Appreciatively, Stessily

      Very nice. Very Proust-like, in it's reflection on the forfeiture of innocence by experience and the inevitablity of the loss of childhood's trusting look at the world.

      Well done,

      "Souls become entangled

      Clever and wise may win

      Their hearts though

      Might be toiled up in sin"

      It's interesting how we start off in the world with a black and white view of right and wrong. It's easy for us to see things like that as kids, but when we grow up things become a lot more complicated than that.

      This was an excellent poem! Voted beautiful and I'm sharing this around my FB and Twitter accounts!
