FOOD FOR HEARTY MINDS

Wide Awake

I’m consigned to a world of my own,

Other characters standing mightily alone,

“Have I skipped a beat”, I ask my clone,

I’m resigned to be prone to a different zone.

.

Situations fold and unfold to a varying sew,

I thread wherethro’ with hardly a clue,

Normalcy appears to have many a skew,

Shrouded with the surreal and the mundane hue.

.

The world changes with a passing fright,

Beckoning me with all its fanciful might,

As reality is distorted with frightening sleight,

We are pushed to the edge to take the flight.

.

When awareness crosses its tantalising brink,

Our lives dance to the predestined link,

Conjuring untrammelled without a blink,

As lives are transformed in barely a wink.

.

A bearing so trivial yet an effect so believable,

A sense of realness yet containing the inconceivable,

I brace myself, losing control to your enticing label,

And wake up with a start as I destroy your cable.

.
