Insanity of Psyche
Age Rating: 10 +
My dreams must be waiting
Across the distant horizon
To be realized, to be born,
To be free in a world
Where illusions forever die
And become nothing but vague sadness.
My place of peace must exist
In the endless cornflower sky--
A haven of serenity, of tranquility,
Of sweet, untouched silence:
The mirage of archaic legend
That indulges in the drifting sanity.
My crystal heart must believe
Fragments of thoughts still breathe,
Living in diamond wind, in golden sun,
In ivory of the misting clouds;
Such is the wistful wish of the shadow,
But the truth of the madness lies.
My happiness must possess laughter
That mocks the dying glimmer:
Jewel of the past, of crumbling present,
Of the fated future darkness,
Residing within the soul of the heavens,
Foreseen by ethereal prophet of kismet.
My empty purpose must be a fool
To be led astray by musing folly,
Wandering into mystery, into secrecy,
Into the waters of black oblivion,
Itinerant between the realms of turmoil--
A psyche of the eternal lunacy.

Between all opposites, the poet walks with a message to share with all. Very, very nice. Again. ^^
Thought flows as the pen moves a mind dump, good voice and position for review, a spew of hope and fate, a trust in share of soul, a moment then held for review....Walt
wow, that seems so sad. it is like you are lost in yourself and everything seems so distant like dreams and happiness, like you are laughing and pretending to be happy but you are not. it is so cool that you always believe and you must know it is there because if it is not you have lost something dear to you like the purpose of life or the will to live.
Your descriptiveness was extraordinary, and i haven't seen a piece like this from someone so young in forever!!! I envy you so, for your unique talent that has been thrust upon you. your emotions made this poem flow so beautifully and there was a slight mystery because you never know if everything you believe in is really there.
I hope i see more poems like this from you. so beautiful.
And by the way you are really good at finding your mistakes.

This is an outstanding piece of writing!! Your first sentence in each stanza leads the reader through the inner thoughts of the speaker. This has a very ethereal feel, wistful in its musing. The imagery is wonderful, good use of words, very descriptive.
Good for you!
