Perfect Realisation

So here’s another of my ‘publish without censoring’ posts. Came to me in a thought, triggered by the title. I hope you like it.

It chases me,
This guilty flush of
Perfect realisation;
That throughout all,
My self confessed addiction
Was mistaken.

These platitudes,
Which spilled from me
In yearning and elation;
Were nought in fact,
But empty words of
Quickly spent temptation.

We often find,
The hidden secret kept
In isolation;
Reveals a truth,
We’ve struggled so to hide
From contemplation.

And now we’ve come,
In circle full to
This capitulation;
I will not hide,
Nor turn away from this
Perfect realisation.

  1. Poems that are raw and straight from the heart often, I feel, work best when they are not tampered with, and this is no exception. Thought-provoking and honest – a great piece of writing.

    I love the sentiment but also the style, which makes me think of a Shakespeare soliloquy.

    • Simon says:

      Thanks Jules – it took me five goes to even SPELL soliloquy….

      • Jules Lucton says:

        I had to check the spelling – and then copied/pasted it. Didn’t mean to sound arty-farty, but that’s what they call those bits that the poem reminded me of. As you well know πŸ˜‰
