What are fantasies? Illusions with wings; Birds uncaged Floating free Over dreamscapes Hovering still where Nightmares dwell A magical world With a wish And a spell In our minds we create A wonderland, or A raging hell!

In the labyrinths of silence I explore inner darkness In awe, I see the lines rusted Of rotting pain Etched on my heart By recollections deep Digging in like ridged shards Most painful are moments I try to, but I can’t recall They lie in the gloomy corners Smothered by macabre screams The ones I had muffled For I knew no one cared

A window of thoughts Hidden behind creepers Ruffled by the rustle Of leaves and critters And a faraway breeze Carrying your perfume Placing it naughtily in the Sweet center of a Jasmine
It’s summer time and the Jasmine vine shrubs are in full bloom. Their gentle aroma fills the air almost always carrying memories from afar. This poem is also inspired by the book cover for E. A. Bowles. My Garden in Spring. London: T. C. & E. C. Jack, 1914 — Source. Cover design by Katherine Cameron
