Delusions in my mind

‘Woops-see! I don’t know
I don’t have ‘skillz’ and I don’t have flow
I’ve gone thirty two years and i’m still unknown
I swore to keep that secret and never let it show
Still I’ve grown
I’m older and wiser
I have ambitions in life to get much higher
To maybe start a family
Even get a wife
The sort of stuff I used to have around me
Yet that’s the tragedy of time
I used to spend most of mine trying to notice any signs
I’d listen to other people and think how relevant are their rhymes
I drew my own conclusions and what did I find?
I’m just another freak with delusions in my mind.

  1. This poem is very powerful. It makes me think. I find that the best poets are able to pull personalities and points of view from others OTHER than themselves. I always worry when I read an intense, melancholy poem that it’s a reflection of the writer. Well, after all my babble I want you to know I really enjoyed this poem.

  2. Thanks Claudia, I am glad you enjoyed it 🙂 It’s always interesting to entertain the negative part our characters in the modern word and I think that’s what I was going for with this. I’m trying to develop it as more of a spoken word piece.


  3. Your poem is lighter than some I’ve read, which begs me to ask…do you think poets are as dark as some of their writings? I always enjoy the deep ones, although they do make me sad sometimes to think that someone is in such a dark place. I never know whether to address that side or to just enjoy the poem for what it is. (usually the second choice)

    1. Hi Claudia, hope you are well. Sorry for the super late reply, struggling to keep blogging atm as really busy working n not got laptop for now which has always been my preferred medium. I just read poems as I feel they come across. I write really dark poems but I’m a really positive person I swear haha I find that for me i use poetry n spoken word as an outlet for that side of my persona haha a great question though n an interesting concept for sure. I’ve started doing live stuff now which I’ll hopefully post soon. i read many poems n think i wonder what that person is like but I guess you can never really know, especially when many are still learning the trade so to speak. A great question though, I totally relate!😃
