the illusion...


What is life
A madness. 
What is life? 
An illusion
a shadow
a story
And the 
greatest good 
is little enough
for all 
life is a dream
and dreams themselves 
are only dreams.

Life, Uncharted. said...

I think of Poe's 'A Dream Within a Dream' when I read this. So dark and sad but I can relate to this more than you know. What is Life? A madness. Yes! ...And the greatest good is little enough. Whoa. Deep.

Thanks GW and I hope you don't mind me mentioning on my blog today :)

Gypsywoman, I relate entirely to these words, especially "...and dreams themselves are only dreams." Illusion - disillusion... a vicious circle that never ends.

I agree with Nevine. It's where we live, isn't it...those dreams? Hard separating when there is not clean line...
Much Love,
Deborah

yes, it is so hard to tell the difference, isn't it deborah! even when "awake" - i've had dreams of someone that were so intense that when i awoke i truly could still smell their scent - you know? and how is that? which was the dream? dreams are just another place we exist and are ourselves -
