The Mag - 11-May 2014

You may think she's underwater.  "She was a mind floating in an ocean of confusion." - Caroline B. Cooney

Escaping
The Hypnotist


Floating somewhere between heaven and earth 
my eyes avert his subtle trance.

However wittingly I escape, his charmingly
abundant traps of misconception.
   Others are tightly 
caught between his web of desire ever mulishly.

Not I, never shall I be caught between his fickle tricks
at the very end of all his masterful demands.

Ingeniously, I hide mercifully behind lingering thoughts.
In shallow combinations of  to dare or not?
A most cumbersome perception of yesterday's 
passions begging to fetch me.

Alone, I honor plausible flashes, and logical sensations
before make-believe trances and troublesome blahs, consume me.

Ah! I love the idea of her hiding, letting herself be handled (or at least letting the handler believe it is so). And then, the flight...

She had a classic way of survival. Good for her! Great one Karen!

O.T. But is blogger's updating of new posts in blogrolls working slow for everybody?

Mine still shows Carmi's post from 3 days ago!

What happened? I came to clucking like a chicken!

JJ said...

Hmmm. Interesting. It is not often I am at a loss for words.

Love the title. Should we escape? "Dare or not?" The whole discussion can be written here... 'Logical sensations' before? And how about the heart? What the heart's thinking? ~ From other point of view- I feel you're safe in this adventure :)xx

I wondered if someone would take the hypnotist route...well done...

Truedessa said...

Well, it might be interesting to be levitated or is it all an illusion by a great hypnotist???

Bekkie Sanchez said...

You had me hypnotized with this!

Sue said...

Especially liked the bit about hiding mercifully behind lingering thoughts.

Great word use!
