Poem: Temporary Illusion

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

"Temporary Illusion" is a poem written about how she deals with noisy neighbors.

She turns the blinds down & makes a private paradise where dreams come true & magic flies through the air.

Temporary Illusion

Sitting on the inside looking out,

feeling a dark mood

she cannot shake,

hearing the sounds of each tire

pulling in and out of the drive.


Music blaring,

door’s slam,

not a moments rest

in the neighborhood.


She creates an illusion,

as her hands twist the wand

turning the window blinds down,

giving birth to privacy

where she can live in her own little paradise.


A place where dreams come true,

and magic flies through the air,

no longer crying tears of despair.
