Real-ME vs Delusional-ME by Roy

Bottomless pit engulfed me 
Darkness provoked my fury
Shadows emanated from the ashes
Real ME was being sucked in flashes!

Shouts and cries 
went unheard to the closed eyes
Real-ME retreated
bottled up into a cage of disbelief!
Delusional-ME reciprocated
cowering into the corners of grief!

Seeking Acceptance 
Craving Approvals
Consenting Judgements
The Delusional-Me adjusted 
while the Real-ME revolted
until the revolts turned mute
and the adjustments became absolute

Defined by its own limitations
Delusional-ME longs for attention 
Waiting to cross those boundaries
Real-ME screams to break free 

I stay awake watching the infinite sky 
Demons crawling beside me to pry
Will I choose the DELUSIONAL or the REAL ME?

Hidden in the thoughts the answer lies
Floating amidst the ceaseless possibilities it awaits to rise
No constraints can bind the sun that never forgets to shine

    We all experience this struggle between the real and delusional self at some point of our lives and you have depicted it so beautifully. Loved it!
