a twisted reflection

how bizare
do we find ourselves
ticking like a bomb

how shaking
do we come to terms
of facing what lies infront

a cicle
gone up in dark flames
in the hands or our own mischief

do we need
to end a beginning
we didnt even start?

can no one
break your dreadful chain
as we weave our own tracks?

have we not
the choice to be free
or we just choose not to be?

note: i feel that my previous illo for the same theme was abit off the topic or i was conveying another meaning of "reflection". and since i have much time at home today i was playing around with my webcam and made random shots. with the help of some weird creativity and the new picasa (which i find as a very handy tool alternative to photoshop, since i havent installed one yet) playing with some colors, i created an illo which cries for the term "reflection".

Maybe this reflects one side of the pent up emotions of my twisted world. i know i should make an "illustration" but heck, i was just making the most out of what programs i have on my PC.

And btw, the poem is for my cousin Tino, who i see myself sometimes, when i was that age.

Very interesting questions you pose here. Really like the thought behind,

"do we need
to end a beginning
we didnt even start?"

Talk about craziness. I found your blog in some sort of blog search engine to see if my name was already in there -- voila, I hit you. Anyway, I have a similar blog as yours, but it is strictly poetry. Small world, isn't it?

dreaming neko.. erm, what was that?

Christopher Trottier.. atomic poet.. thats so strange! linked now you btw

vfm4.. thanks for the visit and comment!

abaniko.. actually, this is not about "love" perse, but you are what you see in a poem.

Tony LaRocca s.. come to think of it.. maybe it does. just have to have a gadget to capture it. lol.

but hmm.. the technique: this is done using a cam focusing on the screen to depict a never-ending reflection of the same background. 8)

recursion! droste effect... i still get freaked out by that effect when i get a haircut and 2 mirrors face each other.

as humans we are pattern-seeking creatures... we either see beauty in the patterns; or dread when we see inevitable fate
