Reality Check 24

When failure occurs
Illusion seduces mind
Hope becomes ragged
Tidy thoughts start to falter
Ragged becomes hope
Illusion seduces mind
When failure occurs

Three Word Wednesday

Poetry & writing to me are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  2. Very nice, Leo. We always figure out some blame for why we fail. I envy you, I have never tried writing these ______ poems. (Not the correct name, but I would call this one a very nice inside out or upside down Senryū.)..

  3. Hiya, Cool stuff! It would be good if you could put a link to this on the NaiSaiKu challenge? site, as I'm sure our readers would enjoy reading this too. I like the way you got the three words in!!

  4. I missed this one..:)So true to the core…we are so carried by our emotions once failure occurs and all we could see next seems to be the best but the truth is, they're nothing but are just there to mislead our true feelings!Beautifully written!

  5. Hey, Nice one Leo. BTW where have you gone. Why you have decided to abstain from my place!! Lol. Drop in dear and share your views. God Bless.

  7. "Tidy thoughts start to falter." I liked this line, it captures the impending doom at that moment you realize failure had become an option after all.I like the symmetry of this poem style as well. Great work!
