Mysterious Illusion

Folder: 
Poems.

You were just a beautiful illusion

 

A mirror image of all that I wanted

 

Dangerous and manipulative

 

My emotions couldn't keep up.

 

My demons were almost at bay

 

But you pulled them to freedom

 

Learning to live with them once again

 

Blaming you, but I let you do it.

 

The mystery, all that is you

 

Igniting something inside me

 

Something unknown to be

 

Leaving me to my own devices

 

Struggling to search for them.

 

The tools to recover

 

Suddenly absent they remain

 

Inside my brain

 

You, the illusion, maintained.

i guess as men we unlock many

i guess as men we unlock many doors to a womans soul only to get them shut in our faces

but sometimes the feelings blossom like a spring flower
