Robotic Floating

She is opaque, at best she is vague, living in a state of robotic floating. She wonders if she could borrow emotion from those whose moods are overflowing. She feels fake, a skilled adult impostor constantly fostering a false decorum. Her life stirs in seasons of autumn but her grown up has yet to blossom. Her sleep is a vacation from immune, dreaming in deep, emotive grooves. Her awake is in a concrete room where neutral moods never move. She wonders when life withdrew and she assumed an isolated cocoon. She still sips life in small spoonfuls that she chases with hope subdued. ... CayCay February 4, 2017

You were on a roll lately. This is also VERY good, Caycay. I love how you took that topic and just rolled the waves to something so different and out of the box. I have one I wrote last night but not posted. It was a good theme for us.

Finding someone you have known forever but have never actually met is really an exciting and wonderful event in one's life. This happens not a lot, but when it does, it sure gets our attention. Poetry like this is the catalyst that brings it all about in ways we simply can not ignore. Pleased to meetcha is a good opening.

Your take on this contest topic is quite unique and creative, CayCay. In life there is nothing wrong with being who we are...better than imitating others! Often it is others who envy us for being who we are! Warm regards // paul

Good imagery here - the second stanza is the oe that stands out for me, a sad tale, reminds me of someone I knew long ago... Best wishes, Dave
