Delusions Of Contentment

Delusions Of Contentment short poem

Photo by h.koppdelaney

Whatever possesses one to feel liberation
A handshake with the mock devil
For in ones head is but a thought
And others that fight to be heard
To create an act of kindness
An essence of the flimsy kind
For it is in a sense a betrayal
For words that portray as such maybe

Whatever possesses one to feel liberation
In a song that sings a thousand lies
A key to ones precious mind
A benign flaw of signs and words unspoken
A limit to imperfections unseen
Entitled to amuse or seek approval
A clear vein of respite unclear
Undue it’s weight in time and emotion
