Before the abyss, I had it all
Letting go of all I see
My friend, I hope our time won't end
It took a short time for you to notice 
Without knowing who I am 
We talked, we became friends

Connecting the dots, missing every line
Connect them and figure me out
Randomly it comes your way
Underneath a never known chemistry
Ask me to stay and I may
Grinding your teeth into my way
Cut out my eyes, and store them up
A tongueless mouth, nothing to say

Maybe by tomorrow you will forget
Losing myself in my own conversation
Hiding behind my one big regret
Don't know, Don't care
You had me open up
A book I closed, knowledge lost

No need to see 
A mystery called deception
What I am cannot be seen with the naked eye
Along came you using your *ucked* up perception
The ability you miss use
making sense of this connection
A process you carry with your own  patterns
You asked, you listened,  without making assumptions
A taste to take off my shoulders, 
To release an error locked in my Asylum
I myself am enjoying the insights about him
He's got me convince, using his perception

Very thought-provoking poem, SKAT. The self-image we project for others to see often are not perceived quite the way we want it to be. Excellent musings. Mighty fine poetry. Love and smiles always.

Sadly, this is very reflective of the emotionally abusive relationship my mother has been in with my stepdad. Great in writing content.

Some people carry the burden that separates those who want to be awakened and those who choose tucked life - once you come to peace with the fact that fariest act is to leave a big part of yourself for yourself, then it is easier to handle people's narratives about yourself, and the failure to communicate is reduced to a minimum , not to say that it is more amusing ;) btw, beautiful poem :)

I can relate to this completely! Some people have told me that I have perfect perception, yet they always get the wrong impression of me. Except for a few friends that are close to me. It is so annoying!...I am adding this fantastic poem to my favorites! You might like my poem "The Real Me"....Thank you so much for the nice comments. I really appreciate it!

"The ability I will let you use on me" It says a lot. Who wants to "release an error locked in my asylum." This is great stuff, Irma, said as only you can say it. Love, daver
