Writer's Island #1 - My Imaginary Life

Just the two of me...

I live a lie most days
although I tell the truth
What you see is what you get
and yet

I'm not who I seem to be
the inner me, the outer me
a contradiction
a mystery

I am the person that you know
I wear my heart out on my sleeve
I share my passions
I bare my soul
but you don't see

my imaginary life
the one I keep all to myself
the tales I spin
the songs I sing
the life I live within

an imagination like mine
never takes a break
never stops creating
so daily I fantasize
i'm in disguise

moving along at a normal pace
inside my head I run a race
i'm two in one
a dual existance
and we dance

This is really delightful and sounds great read aloud, too. The line at the top "just the two of me..." cracked me up -- I love it. I really like how you blended outer and inner.

I absolutely love the way you sewed these thoughts and actions into two. It sings.

I like this - exactly what I'm thinking most of the time. A wonderful piece.

I like that stanza!

Glad you found the island!
