Poem: Lost in the Delusion

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

Lost in the delusion is a poem that tells the story of one who tries convincing a love he discarded that he still cares, but adds a twist of fantasies. As she listens to his words and watches his actions she is left confused. Yet she realizes he really didn't love her from the beginning.


Lost In The Delusion

Like being hit by a tornado
destruction still lingering in her heart,
words echo through her mind
deciphering the lost meaning in each one.

Sexual innuendos from his lips
taunting the core of her being
with fantasies for real life.

Lost in the delusion,
now understanding his true essence
discovering his love was nonexistent
from the beginning.
