Silhouettes and Soliloquies

I’m hiding in the shadows,

it’s where I long to be,

drifting into dreamscapes,

singing sad soliloquies.

I have my other life, you see?

I’ve lived it since a child;

It’s not quite real – that I know,poem,poems

but I’ve lived it for a while.

The daytime is the hardest,

a cruel life chased by death;

but night time is so easy,

sleep brings immortal breath.

What’s real, what’s not?

Well who’s to say?

Each one its own delusion,

by night the moon –

by day the sun –

each life is an illusion.

Shadows play upon my mind,

ghosts welcome setting sun;

silhouettes of dreams gone by

half-lives, loves-lived, undone.

So let me go, and leave me be,

to live each night anew.

I’ll sing my sweet soliloquies,

while dreams bring me to you.

  3. very nice post Alex …beautiful…Tim

  4. I really like that one! I’ve been thinking of starting a separate blog for my poetry… but for the life of me I can’t figure out why I keep running out of time!

    • Oh I know what you mean about time being an illusive and tricky mistress!!
      it is really worth starting your own page – you can keep track of your work much easier. Though I find setting up the blog is time consuming and faffy – best done with a big bar of chocolate and a do not disturb sign on the door!!

  5. what an enjoyable poem! thanks for sharing! Several times I repeated lines over out loud just for the pure enjoyment of them

  6. Love the flow….it is charming and thoughtfully done!
