“I know a girl with the Golden touch”…

She lives a lie…
A complex fantasy…

Disguised in words…
So no one can see…

That she’s all alone…
Walking in single file…

But won’t admit it…
As she lives in denial…

Like it’s a weakness…
Her Achilles heel…

A chink in her armour…
If she ever revealed…

How empty she was…
Deep down inside…

That he doesn’t exist…
She’d lose all her pride…

So she lives a life…
Inside her head…

Where he resides…
Outside the empty bed…

Inventing stories…
Of her happy life…

But each White lie…
Twists the internal knife…

As she knows that…
The day will come…

Her mask will slip…
And she’ll come undone…

Revealing the void…
Of heart-breaking pain…

The bitter loneliness…
And never ending rain…

As she’s falling apart…
With no one around…

No one to adore…
No soul mate found…

So she lives this lie…
A made up fantasy…

Hidden behind her words…
For no one to see…

  1. Everyone who loves loves the image in his or her head at least as much as the object of his desire. It’s great when the image and the object share a strong basis in reality as well as fantasy, not so much when we have to tell ourselves lies just to survive.

  2. Unfortunately, sometimes creating and living our fantasy world is the only way not to go mad, or it’s the only way to carry on until everything falls into place.

    • If you read the “Whats it all about” page, that will expain the premise of my words – this was based on 2 songs – Golden Touch which is the youtube clip and Also a song called World Where you Live by Crowded House – this has a line in it that talks about the Golden one who leads a double life – this is the angle I chose for my words – we only see the version of people we want to show them – but behind the eyes, a different reality exists – hope that answers your question – Cheers J

  3. J, stumbled upon your blog by chance and really love your poems and song selections. Sometimes feel you are describing my life. Thank you so much for sharing and inspiration.
