Melodies

I just want to clarify that my poems are usually a result of my often fluctuating passions and are merely fleeting ideas and thoughts. Think of them as dramatic rambling instead of a reflection of how I really feel and perceive the world.

I often fabricate scenarios in my head
Until my conscious is encumbered 
With fantasies that preoccupy my mind while I lie in bed, 
and often render me from slumber

I can not pinpoint where I acquired this mentality
Perhaps my ancestors did it as well
All I know is that my dreams are much better than reality,
And that I’m quite content just to dwell 

Possible lovers and friends elude my perception 
Instead I resort to amusing delusions
My imaginary friends are the only exception
Real affection is merely an illusion

For love is not real 
Except in our sub-conscious dreams 
It is not an emotion or something you feel
But instead a deceitful scheme

That lures you in, and for a minuscule interval of time,
You almost believe it exists

Beautiful poem, I especially like the beginning stanzas.

But I'm glad you clarified that the poems don't reflect your actual feelings; how sad, to believe it's impossible to be truly loved?

Keep up the great work!

Gorgeous poem! I don't think most people would assume that your poems reflect your own feelings- they are art. I don't take photographs of what is inside me, necessarily. Often they are of what's going on around me! I think all art can be the same way. I like the photo compilation at the end of the post as well, excellently done. As always, love your blog :)

Absolutely incredible pictures, especially the second one. I swear the US has such dull architecture compared to the rest of the world. I especially noticed this when I was in Australia, all the buildings were incredible! Then I came back home and everything was just.. blah. Of course I live in Utah so that may be the problem. :)

I'm a senior actually, but I'm thinking I won't apply to FIDM for a couple of years and first get my generals out of the way at a local university, then transfer. So that's why we could possibly go to school together. :)
