Like you, I recall falling through a hole in the sky. Swimming
in my pool of tears, forgetting who I am.
Perplexity now surrounds all encounters. Strange
creatures inhabit my world, thinking
they have answers.
Like you, size and image alternating,
perceptions interchanging, only confusion
reliable, conformity inevitable, insanity rampant,
creating this world a carnival,
Like you, mystery I must embrace.
even delusion so convincing, lies so enthralling,
world so deceiving.
Perhaps at least you can be real,
be truthful, be honest.
Alice, from this wonderland
like you, will I awake?
(For Dverse Poets.)
Thanks to Brian's support I dared to write this, my first poem in 2010. My mind has been blank but I wanted to submit something for the last time Claudia and Brian host Dverse. I am so grateful for all their work and excellent coordination in arranging posts.
