My Mind is Alive..



Dreams, Desires, Hopes n wishes,
I’ve lost them all in the lost period.
I do breathe and yet do not live
I was born, but yet am not alive..

I’ve lost my sound, my visions, my faith..
My presence is denied as if I exist no more,
To be here and yet not to be;
As if, I am no more alive..

Designs have blurred, so has my mind;
I move about like a hallucination.
I so now still, hopelessly survive,
And yet, I am not alive..

Mute silence is recreating me!
My numb mind instructing my visions to sing,
As if my resurrection is as sure as Death..
Watch-out My Dear, I am here- I am Alive.


As I post this in Poetry Potluck, I realized that I have already re- discovered myself! I had gone on a travel and that did it. It had all the signs- I only had to walk down the trail. I am so Glad that I did.. 🙂

    Olivia, I love how the last line of each of the stanzas make a powerful statement in their own right.

    I’m glad you walked the trail and found yourself again. 🙂

    My potluck: so maybe

    I like this – it’s like a snake right after shedding skin – caught between spirit and flesh.

    Oh Olivia! I couldn’t have described it any better. Very emotional and mind absorbing. Made me go on an inner journey too.

    Oh my gosh, Olivia.. this is very moving and really touched a nerve too deep.. And to add to it, the repetition was like too toooo good! It sure had the desired effect!
    For some reason, this poem reminds me of Pink Floyd’s “Comfortably Numb”… I love that song!

    Hugs to you, girlie xoxoxox

      Kavz Dear,
      This was crafted during the initial days of my Blogging. I would often write about how I was captivated within my situations. Then almost as if directed by the Supreme, I used to craft the last few lines creating a twist; hence, concluding the painful episode!

      I am glad that my words did create a magic for me. Although still in its nascent state, I am already enjoying the feel.. 🙂

      I am humbled that a few simple words made you think of your fave numbers..
      * BOW *

      Loads of Love

    Trips do have a way of offering new perspectives, allowing one to draw from dreams, bringing things into our realities… I’m glad you are alive.

    I like the last verse where you turn it around and are alive! Nice use of ‘bold’ type.
