Illusion: A Poem

August 26, 2014 | By

Life is just an illusion
Distinguish the unreal beauty
From the beautiful reality.

Rainbow

The lovely rainbow whose sight I lost
Gave way to an eclipse

Misguided by fate,
And seduced due to my innocence,
I ran into the traps
Of that enticing and seemingly unbelievable Fantasy land

Too beautiful for words but too ugly in reality
I inhaled the fragrant sinister air
Not soon enough, but not long after

Impervious to the chimera I was in
I gave my heart away
But the insatiable
Was even after my last bit of life
Frightened, I gave it all to run back
But I ran out of life

Hopes diminished, life lost,
But a lesson learnt
Life is just an illusion
Gotta distinguish the unreal beauty
From the beautiful reality.

I love reading novels, writing, listening to music and singing. I am a debater and orator too. I aspire to be a successful doctor! I, from my deepest core, wish to do something for the welfare of this world. It is so beautiful; we can’t let anyone ruin its beauty even a bit!
