Born to You

In this dreamworld
I am born to you
In this illusion
Feel me warm to you

I’m a prisoner
Of this flickering view
I dance this dance
That wears a darker hue

And yet I dream
To find the smallest clue
That turns illusion
Into something true

In this dreamworld
Let me cleave to you
For I so need
To yet believe in you

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.

    This might be a strange take on the last stanza…but I’m a little on the strange side. When I read it I took it as me talking to myself. That I need to be true to myself, cleave to myself, and believe in myself. I think it was when I lost belief in myself that I started embracing addictions…does that make any sense…or have I just rambled aimlessly on your page?!? lol

    • Makes perfect sense…it was a bit of an odd poem to write, just sort of came and it was a bit light, a bit dark, and seems to have been interpreted a number of ways, all of which are valid as I only had very vague ideas of what it might be about! πŸ™‚

        That’s one of things I love about poetry…the many ways it can be interpreted by the reader β™₯
