I'm sitting here on the pavement
under the eternal, grey rain...
...drops of blind illusions...
I'm tired of searching my future in puddles,
seeing myself transforming
and telling me, with mercy:
"Child, search for your future elsewhere
search for Paradise elsewhere"
But all streets look the same
and I don't know who I am anymore:
the sad harlequin, with a grin painted on his face,
the anguished Barbie-doll with paper-thin shoulders,
or maybe that nameless danger
hidden inside all of my masks,
in which I've lost myself
searching a cardboard Paradise

This is a tasty bit of poetry. Another fine meditation. Very moving. Ah, Paradise lost!

I accidentally ran across one of your poems in Random Reader and had to read some more. This is REAL poetry. Thanx.

Agree with..
above because it was on random reader that i found this and I'm really glad that I did because of the fact that most of the work i go through i will read it and post little bit about but i love how somber and true this really is. It makes the heart wrench and makes for a good poem.
