sometimes . . . ?

Sometimes ?

it was a lonely time
and my comfort and consolation played “Hide and Seek”
in the chambers of my heart
and my thoughts

all too often as the Artist that i am
i created a multitude of personas
so that it would appear that i had friends

i embraced this deliberate schizophrenia
so i would have someone to talk to

in my seclusive reclusion
my fair dear old friend “Joy” eluded me
so i found it quite necessary to delude myself
that i may pretend to be sane
on this inane plane
i have adopted as my lot

seemingly i have forgotten
the feel of the sunshine
and winds
upon the Sails of my hope
yet i have been coping
much longer than i cared
yet i dare not
go beyond the line in the sand
of my insecurities

yes, i was lonely
as only i could be
for in some justifiable
yet deniable line of thought
i have bought
into some deranged psyche
that i was OK
what can i say
for we all live that way . . .

sometimes ?
