Validation

In their dreams…

Yes, please Whisper indoctrinated dialect Upon my harrowing song Yes, please Remove that scented, plastic tulip Place it upon my oblivious palm As if we’re in a Sadie Hawkins dance Bribing hearts With petal currencies Psst, hey I woke up only feeling like a thousand bucks. A foreign knock-off made of recycled, rubber bolts And ambiguity Please Tell me I’m priceless with borrowed, high-interest breaths Liquidate my potent complacency To become that symbol of an elitist humanity Yes! Stroke that clouded, diamond tip With your sensual thumb Love stamps of approval After 6 months of quickie penetration And co-signatures on dilapidated apartment leases PLEASE, YES! Take me to our creator! Tell Him I am free!!! I will stand here in virtual observance! Wait, where are you going? Come back to me! COME BACK TO ME! My wheelchair’s batteries are fading! How will I stand?! NO! …
Sadly, they never validated their reality… ©Drake J. Eszes

    Drake, this is sad, the imagery. My mother was in a wheelchair the last 9 years of her life. Thank you for clarifying things in your blog. LINDA

    So it is the same person you talk of, write of in this case. Or like me, and write on imagination and some memories ;} nicely done Drake ;}

    Hey Debbie! This would involve one person (fictional) that I write of, seasoned w/a bit of imagination. ;-) Thanks so much!

    Your poetry is impressing. I see a sort of desperation in your words, desperate for a lost love and for solitude. I hope it is only a dream.

    It was certainly a dream. More certainly, it wasn't mine. But, others I've come across. ;) Nice to meet you Mario! Thanks so much for stopping by!

    Drake...I thought there would be a happily ever after. The lead up was so amazing! :( Great write...I don't know where it came from...reality or fiction, but...great write, nonetheless!

    On the surface, no. But, if you look deeper, there is one. The question is, can it be accepted & understood as something that much more substantial? Because, remember, it was just a dream. ;) To answer your question on where it came from...my mind. :) Thank you so much, Eileen! Stay awesome! :)
