Illusion

Updated on September 10, 2012

You are an illusion

To my heart

You don't really exist

Betrayed in many parts

A sickening twist

Many faces you wear

A jester you reappear

Multiple guises

Mastered

From thin air

I sit there

Wondering

What fools are they

To believe in you

Selfish and cunning

You really don't care

Narcissism is your vice

You wear it well

Maybe it will save you

From burning in hell

      Hmmm...this is about the third hub today where the subject is a loved one's indifference and narcissism..

      Seems to be a sad, but accurate, statement on a culture devolving into the toilet..(excuse my non poetic assessment..lol)

      well done, dear..

      This takes the mind to such a dark atmosphere. Like being tricked or tormented by the supernatural, possibly even by your self. Reality has no bounds on poetry. This poem creates its own reality. Brilliant!

      Straight from the heart. There are quite a few who have crossed my path that I have wanted to send straight down to hell. Hope this one is long gone from your life.
