My Misconception

I can't see the window
This is not what It meant to be
You are not my shadow
Nor the reflection
I hold within

I can't see the window
What you hold before me
I cannot be
Is this my misconception?
Or am I just a fool
Caught in your obsession

Why do you claim to be
This imaginary beautiful thing
To dance in the heavens above me
And show me a world of dreams

Why do you claim to love me
When your eyes tell me different things
Is this just your torment?
*Or you just haven't noticed yet.
*Or your mind just isn't set
*Or that's just it

I will find my window
I approach for better things
You are like a vampire
Your only motive,
to suck me in

I can see my window
My escape to better things
The only possibility
To the fool
who has become me
Born for your obsession


You take the things that love me
And f*ck with all the truths
Whilst you path your way to glory
In a Ute with no wheels

You take our photographs
Then breaks them in front of me
You burn away my everything
So there's nothing left to dream

This is not the answer
To the damage that's burning through
You will only work to lose it
If the damage becomes you

Geni Kelepouris

I began writing when i was 16. I enjoy expressing myself through all forms of art ( my profile pic is one of my art pieces). I have had a life full of tragedies and suffer post traumatic stress. I find that art and writing soothes my soul and allows me to heal from all the pain that has been haunting me. I have an obsession with existence and love nothing more than to discuss all the different theories of why we are here. My poems cover a range of topics from love and inspiration to complete random mania. There are also some very deep poems that i needed to write to get the sorrow from my life. I just hope whoever is reading them enjoys them. more…
