Concealed Madness.

Concealed Madness.

Somewhere over the rainbow --

how they twist reality,
allowing us to succumb
into this fictitious mind frame.

that simple phrase assumed
for the sake of concealment;
forever reminding these humans
of the illusion we cannot live in.

Somewhere over the rainbow --

how in this world
trouble really does melt
like lemon drops as we try
to rid of reality with our drugs.

how I see no pot o' gold or
leprechauns dancing by
my feet as I beg to escape
this madness.

Written for contest in which we had to either include the
title of a given song or a line that she had chosen for us.
I decided to do both...

Somewhere over the rainbow : Israel Kamakawaiwo'ole.
"trouble melts like lemon drops."

    Gosh did I love reading this. I think my favorite part was how you start each oart with a different word. I really enjoyed that. I alos like that you repeated "somewhere over the rainbow" that gave the poem a sense of hope. I entered this contest too but I can honestly say you did a brillant job here. You took an almost cliche saying and made it your own and that's hard to do. Beautiful work dear. :) Nik
