Master of disguise (prose)


*'master of disguise' is not a poem, i know...
it's just something that i wrote & felt like sharing with the world :)



I'm afraid to sleep because I'm afraid to dream … I always dream of you, why do I constantly dream of you? What are you? ! … You invade my dreams, my mind, my every thought, my space, you invade my life! You hide in my shadow, you hide deep within my wounds.I catch you move! But still no one can see you! You follow me, you never leave me, I see you underneath my eyes, yet, no one does! And no one believes me! My lack of proof is your disguise. O, my eyes filled with sadness, sorrows, and grief and my heart filled with anger and charred hatred. Why do I hate you? Is it even possible to hate something that breathes my air and runs in my veins? ! You don't really exist, do you? You're nothing but a figment of my imagination! - Aren't you? … All these questions and thoughts became cages!
I close my eyes … I almost got away - almost …
I fell into a place that I've always been afraid of … I fell asleep with my phone in my hand waiting for you to text me back my dear friend. I fell into a place that I've always - always been afraid of … And I had a dream - I had the same dream again! The dream where he feels safe, secure and powerful, where he pulls off his disguise and play the game!

    You are challenged by an illusion. It plagues your dreams therefore is is not real. Only does it have power over you when you are unconscious. This could be terrifying because your dream scape is the refuge of the soul.
    This could be a plea for help. If it worsens it could manifest in the conscious state and dreams and factual life
    become blurred. (Report) Reply

    Hi this Wini Jose. Your poem does tell me that you have the callibre to be a poet. But I think you are supposed to concentrate a little more on the way you write a poem. It should have a little more of rhyme scheme and paragraph formation. (Report) Reply

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
