Fragments of Irreality

I’m short of feelings and reasons to live,
Like a sort of puppet in a grotesque show –

I’m like a sort of rejected stupid puppy
Who doesn’t know why and how he’s alone –

You, even by passing by me, are guilty,
For having left me, after giving me hope –

How cruel, seeing a condemned to death,
Passing by him, not even saying him Hello –

But blimey! I’m not blaming, but me,
Who other could be guilty for being me –

Indeed, I owe you to thank you,
For giving a last sweet illusion to me –

To a puppy who’s empty of envy,
Having no breed, nor greed; full freed –

I’m a sort of shameless liar,
Who plays that he lives day to day –

But I’m short of any lie when I say,
I loved seeing you passing by the way.

  1. I noticed some of your poems were written a couple years ago. Do you still have the feelings of gloom and disappointment all the time … You seem stuck in this hole. I hope your reality is really not all doom and gloom.

    1. Thank you for noticing it and for your wish. Actually, it’s been more than a decade that I am like this since my childhood. I’ve got diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder that doesn’t add too much more to my life. I tried a couple of time changing, or socializing, but these things are doomed as you said. I’m quite funny and enjoyable, only my feelings are gloomed, so it’s fine.

      1. Okay… That’s good you’re funny. I like to think I’m funny as well, eventhough I write about pain or hurt from time to time. I was just concern that I didn’t see much break in the doom and gloom in your writing. On a positive note you’re a lovely writer 🙂 .

      2. Thank you so much. Your words are really kind. Yeah, I got accommodated so much with loneliness, getting along with people causes problems to everyone. Haha. By the way, I tried to contact you before through your blog (I don’t know if you’ve got the message or not), I wished to know you a little much better since I like your style of writing. If you’re okay with that, tell me. ☺️
