Afraid

Glaring. Thinking. Judging.

Staring. Gossips. Smiling.

What are you most afraid of?

PEOPLE.

In the rusted corners of your dreams, in the corner of your brain, dust gathered. In the vague of self existence, the people you meet add on to the gusty life.

The worst part of all is, you are imprisoned with full security. Imprisoned with relations tied onto your neck, clutching your hands are feelings and clutching your feet are your own dreams. The dreams that are independent of what people think, the dreams that are independent of what your mind thinks. The dreams that you feel. The dreams that are the reasons why you wake up daily. The dreams that you have, to kickstart your heart. The dreams that you have to break open from all cages.

But then, time is a friend of none.

It flies..

Remember? Remember remember?

YOU ARE IMPRISONED WITH FULL SECURITY AND THE JAILURE IS … TIME.

  1. In the rusted corners of your dreams, in the corner of your brain, dust gathered. I love it… blissful perfection!
    And here is my reply…

    “ Dreams for Reasons ”
    ~ of phantasmagoric delight ~
    If you can reach
    Beyond reality,
    To thus so dream
    With cerebral acuity,
    You may transcend
    Wonted portend,
    In out of person
    Sleep nocturnal,
    If operose plight
    Leaves you contrite,
    In nightmares lined
    With shades of night,
    Be issues begged
    Rid torturous sights,
    You might extol
    Such dreams
    Held ever bold,
    For they be screened
    From light of day,
    And so be purged
    From night time dreams,
    Whose phantasmagoric lean
    Meant be our night’s delight!
    ode to Edgar Allan Poe
