The Test: Please answer honestly.

Have you ever dove underwater,
And stayed down for ages,
Simply because you'd forgotten of your need to breathe…?
…It is impossible to defy your nature…

Have you ever danced in the rain for hours,
Because nothing ever felt so good,
Or so right in your life before?
…And every drop that hit you washed away some of your soul's blackness…

Have you ever walked down a staircase,
And never remembered taking a step?
…You are drifting between points A and B…

Have you ever swam in the sky?
Have you ever felt the darkness lifting you up?
Have you ever dodged a star as it floated by?

Have you ever lied, just for the hell of it?
Have you ever screamed, because it was just too quiet?

Have you ever recognized someone,
Someone you had never laid eyes on before?
…Am I delusional?…Are you blind?…

Have you ever wept because people are just too idiotic,
Too ignorant?
…Psychoanalysis; sociopathic.
  
Have you ever been absurd?
Have you ever been outrageous?
Have you ever been mean?
Have you ever been rude?
Have you ever felt alive?

…Have you ever been truly happy?…

Questions that we all we should ask ourselves. I think the last one is the most important, "Have you ever been truly happy?…" I wish I could answer yes, maybe some day but your poem did put a smile on my face. Great poem and interesting imagery. If there is anything in your poem i haven't done I shall put them on list of important things to do.
