Illusions Poem by Adeosun Pelumi


Dreamless life;
Bleak as the dreariest night
Encloaked in illusions
Woven to be believed
By the weariest mind.

Life lived in shadows,
A farce believed in sorrow;
As the boat capsized
And hopes came tumbling into
The enraged sea.

Illusioned world,
A sightless one;
Like a blind's dream of beauty;
Beauty seen behind closed eyes.

Reality;
An illusion nonetheless,
As the reaper's face is unveiled
And darkness enshrouds all that lives
