Pay Attention!

Oh, the actualization
of hallucination!

Hear me now, you dare induce me,
of your poison I want to be free!

You had the gall to envenom my mind recently,
and the hell I descended, the things I would see!

This experience made me lose sight of reality,
I saw all before me what no other could see!

A utopia!
Surrealism-stuffed cornucopia!

Then the voice of normalcy,
a normal stranger staring at me

wide-eyed, perplexed,
“next!”

I was suddenly standing in the store!
Of this curse I want no more!

My submission for the competition, Everyday Moment. I chose the prompt when you realize you're not paying attention. I can relate to this quite well, as many DUP members would be aware from reading my writings that I am a diagnosed schizophrenic. And this piece is about how inattentive I can be when suffering from a visual/auditory hallucination. Check out my website:
