Delusions Thoughts of Deceive

Delusions .

Thoughts of, Deceive ? 


Perceptions derive - from experiences one has had -
at times skewed by all that has made one sad -
come back to haunt the present, make one feel so bad
on this journey to something different, something new,
a journey out of the past, experiences unlike with you.
Experiences, - I have had many - with you, very few ! 

It is so very difficult to see through the silence,
through a world apart and all the defense.
I am in a quandary ?, precariously on a fence
not knowing which way to step ?, what is right ?,
and so all I seem to do is - carry on this inner fight
that takes me from then to when, losing all sight,
questioning the innocence, the beauty before me.

Will the past ?, always be the eyes through which I see.
