Odds With Reality

Can you really capture reality and enslave it depending on the caprices

Fight the reflection in the mirror, or, steal its identity for a masquerade

Peel off the flaky reality, bundle and crush them into a ball of desperation

Give names to already named feelings; as if, to spoil their reputation

Push them into an oddly shaped bottle and shake them vigorously

A cocktail of confusion; drink them and deny everything- the euphoria

Settle on the couch for a  deep reverie of haphazard and uncontrolled fancies

The strong desire to be in denial and twist reality into a hideous caricature
