Mirage Poem by David Beckham


Rating: 4.4

Laying on God’s green earth and staring at the far away sky blue
Then came the thought of a man I knew dressed in blue
But he quickly hauled me away with a gun in his hand and we sailed to some faraway place
Not that this was a dungeon where Hannibal Lecter* lived, indeed it was no such strange place
There he served me a drink and the drink caused sleep to come to me
So that I could neither tell if I was still on God’s green earth or in those trusting blue sky hovered over me

Laying on God’s green earth, with all the time in the world to reflect on my deeds
And thinking if this was my last day on earth, this I swear with the blue sky as my witness that I would change about me and my needs …
Then I awoke from my captors drink and realized he’d gone to where I didn’t care exist
Just this moment I should escape to safety, this many fantasies I care not resist
The thoughts of trust betrayed and sheep in wolves clothing, the one I thought I knew, and whom I gave my trust to, but turns out he wasn’t the one I thought I knew
Laying here and if my last day on earth, I’d change the fact that I didn’t so trust of people … all this in memory of the man dressed in blue

Hannibal Lecter M.D. is a fictional character in a series of horror novels by Thomas Harris and in the films adapted from them.

We all hide behind a mask to some degree, those who would hurt us only teach us to appreciate those who would enhance our existance. The lessons of life are not always obvious... I enjoyed your your poem... Thankyou.

A compelling narrative/ are your breaks intentional? If so, maybe consider accenting these stopping points. I think while, reading this poem, the kind of narration used brought me in to a state of confusion and yet allowed me breathing space to gather my thoughts. The poem stuck with me. Very Nice!
