This life we live in: lots of confusion
Look up to the future: just an illusion
Now, look into the eye of the mirror
Do you see you, or just another error?
I see a masked being
Different from his reality
Where do I find my real me?
You will find the real you
Waiting for you at the edge of your dreams
Waiting to walk with you into the realm of reality
I want to achieve goals farther than I can comprehend
Alas, my reality comes up to obstruct me from pushing further
When do I meet my goals?
You will meet your goals
When you walk up to them
With eyes focus on the fruits of the future
After the use of mescaline
I came by epiphany
Out of this, I think I need love
To lure me off my sadness
Everyone needs to be fired by Cupid’s arrow
You are not an exception
Be Mars enough, and you will find your Venus
My Venus? Where do I find her?
Deep in my thoughts and imaginations, will I find her?
In reality, she never existed
As I need her as a ‘zing’ to cure my pain
You will find her among planets that look like people
The smile on her face will be the crescent curve that will connect you to her
Oh, the succour to my heart
The cure to my pain
Where art thou?
For my days seem stunted in your absence
Patience attracts good luck
You will soon find her
Walking out of your dreams into your embrace
Hopes kill without reinforcement
I await you in my milieu
As I’ve waited long enough to die of pain.
NB: Poetry Play, a product of Artilogue in partnership with PenAStory, is a game in form of poetic dialogue for every poet on BBM. It is a game of two poets: one drops a line or more, and the other replies, flowing along until one of them gives up, or the poem gets too long. Every poem formed from this game will be published here (penastory.com) every Friday and Saturday. So poets, are you ready to play? If yes, contact Samuel via BBM: 7f5210ec
