(A) 49 (LOVE/PASSION) THIS IS CRAZY


A shadow with me all day
No body
This is crazy, this is crazy

Notes of a scintillating flute
No flutist
This is crazy, this is crazy

Breathtaking verse on paper
I was sleeping
This is crazy, this is crazy

Vermilion laden sky
Sunrise or sunset?
This is crazy, this is crazy

Dishevelled clothes, swollen lips
You came in my dream
I am crazy, I am crazy

Or is this the only sanity? ?

    Crazy, maybe, but very sanely and artistically expressed. A pleasing mix of a dream-like hallucination and thoughtful philosophy. You express the intangible with great clarity. love, Allie xxxx (Report) Reply

    A modern slant on 'A DREAM WITHIN A DREAM', perhaps? ...Excellent slice of surrealistical verse, young lady....you are playing on my every weakness...Dreams...The Mind & The Darkside...all my favourite topics of lit.. & research...Great work, T.O.

    Sometimes it's difficult to separate dream from reality. After all, we do create them both, only on different levels of thought. Been there, done that - totally know what you mean! Great little piece, TO.

    I know exactly what you mean. (The mark of a good poem, to have readers entirely relate?) Fine line between craziness and sanity. Katie Meluah (? spelling) 'this is the closest thing to crazy I have ever been....'. (Might be misquoting) . Yep. t x (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
