My Illusion - Poem by Michael Samad

Just stand in my field of vision
Don’t run, don’t hide
You don’t need to take a decision
Let me swim in your paradoxical sight
Let me be thrilled with your discrete light
Talk, walk, laugh and scream
Sleep, smile, hold and dream
You’re free, no definite location
Just enjoy life, no special occasion
You’re beyond time
May be it’s a crime
To forget and fly..
Too much high …

Life is dynamic, never static
Anchoring to a woody salvation
A new beginning, a fresh creation
Trial and error are there
It’s the real cross that one should bear
It’s the burning sun and the blowing air
It’s the pouring rain, the earthy pain
Decapitating the tip of a grain
For it to grow, the raw must show

....In this foolish madness
Honesty smoothly coupled with sadness
So let me stay drunk to dream
Let me wipe my dusty screen
Let me live our mortal collision
In my hazy field of vision.........

    Excellent! Simply Excellent. I liked the 'Too Much High' this conveys the right feeling. I will suggust you change the line: 'It’s the burning sun and the blowing wind' to 'It’s the burning sun and the blowing air'... But, all in all, I loved it. My favorit so far. I am adding it to my list. You are a poet.10++ (Report) Reply

    The line 'too much high' threw me off a little-perhaps 'too high' would sound better. But other than that, great work! (Report) Reply

    I like this poem. I like the sentence where you describes life as dynamic. Because it is. also the sentence So let me stay drunk to dream are pretty cool. a part of the poem remind me a little of my own poem 'False Art'. But maybe that's just me? (Report) Reply

    Lovely poem...I like the part about just enjoy life. I sense that the message in your poems is that of unconditional caring...not necessarily 'love' (whatever that means...) but more like acceptance and support, and even adoration. Please tell me if I'm on the wrong path. This seems to be what I get from your poem...
    Hugs,
    Dee
