Many times in my life my emotional state has been created by misunderstanding, convoluted thinking, and fantasy.

Artificial thoughts

cause some

very real emotions;

fearful self-talk

replace daily devotions.

Visions of loneliness

and replays of reality;

my soul is a blank tape,

can I record some new memories?

Fast forward through

these tough times,

press pause to correct;

feelings are imbedded

in events that are suspect.

Fantasy collisions

mixed cause and effect;

confronting the fake,

choosing the channel

of true ness and respect.

When the details

keep fading in the haze,

I must choose

the option and direction

of the means and the ways.

I laugh when sad,

numbness makes me stoic;

events of a lifetime,

covered up by daydreams heroic.

What is this scene;

can I view it closeup?

Buried sensations

awoken by truth,

enhanced by new details

with honesty of visions.

Clouded windows

shaded from the light,

suddenly clear with the purity

of renewed vibrancy and hope.

Part of me

comes to the conclusion

that information is control,

hearsay no option;

staying in the moment

and experiencing life

is the only way to my soul.

So much truth to this poem, EJ. Reigning in those negative thought patterns can be so hard. I can really relate to this.

A very passionate write, sensing your mind wandering through a time warp. Not always good to allow the mind to wander without keeping it in check. Enjoyed this.

Be safe,
