Anthem To The Unreal

A thin sheet covers me
I wish and will
to disappear

a voice
turns empty promises to
dust
dead Silence fills an ear

A sound a whisper
more like
a haggard breath
I imagine
churns inside
what to make of this?

I feel
Lost but also
Found

can anyone feel me?
Heal me
Deal with me?

is this real
or make believe?

Is life
mere fantasy?
Current state a fake?
Do you know?
Do tell
this mystery will
surly
steal me
away

Andrew Mayers, or Mr Mayers, the King of 34 Baker Street, who submitted this poem, is my favourite all-time English teacher. A legend. Like him, this is dark and mysterious but leaves you wanting more.
This is a calm poem😓
