miss understood

I've become
abstract
they dont understand
anymore

my vague dreams
and a reality of mediocrity
bleed into one

the veils slipped
and I glimpsed midnight
I watched as each pale fell
and a god whispered come near

I've changed my dress
to hide growing scars
littering the landscape
of my entwined limbs

scattered from here
to neverwas, I am lost
alone and so afraid
and misunderstood again

even though you have changed your dress. Take heart. Even though the world changes, you still shine! Do not doubt that things will get better. Have faith that the world will rebound and show the glory it is capable of. I love the mystery and the allusion. One of your better works here lately. Love and higgest bugs, ~ Gee

Hey jc,
'a reality of mediocrity' is a great line for poetry, but it's not YOU. 'Shadow boxing yourself', another great line for poetry... Be well, good woman from Taree. You have a new friend.

Can't thank you enough I appreciate the read and your thoughts
And you can't have too many friends ... If I can ever help in anyway
don't hesitate I used to help run this place and if I don't know I can
point you to someone that does know

Love n hugs ~

That being said, this poem has the power of a Goya nightmare. Dungeon reflections of an already grey sun. This shows very deep fronds of Nietzsche's 'the lonely of lonelies.' Distorted bodies clad in grey reaching for hand-holds in stone walls. This is a chilling poem showing great skill and sensitivity. I hope to see the happy work from you too.
