Hallucinations - Poem by lalitha iyer

They flash across
gurgling images;
lit images
faces of remote past
touching heart
kissing for a second
with intense emotions
and passions forgotten.

when the fever rises high
you are lost into the vortex of dashes
every subconscious picture dances wild
like the goblins of fairy tales
they dash across sanity's screen
you are no more; your controls lost
they reign you with their voltages peaking
mocking at your helpless protests
Hallucinations-demons of sensitive hearts
devils flirting with struggling serenity

Hallucinations-pinning you to non existent possibilities
kindling your numbing impossibilities
with flaming dragon balls
digging every sleeping corpse
full of your babyish love and desires
giving life to every lust you in ash trays laid
slowly tracing the long lost faces you yearned
painting with the buried passions
watery images metamorphosizing every second
splitting every nerve cell
oh, I am dying of excitement.

    Nice and well penned piece of poetry written with insight. The poem really captures the illusion of hallucination and its distorting effect on realities. A lovely poem indeed. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply
