ILLUSION

I saw the sun shining sharply,
the stream flowing freely,
the wind blowing softly,
the grass laying beneath ceaselessly
through the glorious valley,
as I stood there waiting for you impatiently.
Then I saw you walk towards me breathlessly,
with hair that got a little messy,
yet you came through dashingly.
As you reached there, you look at me lovingly;
took my hand nervously,
got down on one knee charmingly,
asking me to be yours forever bewitchingly.
I said yes, enthusiastically,
as you put a ring on my finger, oh what a beauty!
It was a moment that went flawlessly,
while everything fits in perfectly,
my world seemed complete elegantly,
until I realize it was all an illusion, a delusional fantasy;
a hallucinated fairy tale with no possibility.

  1. Owh, Daph.. what a captivating and tough-twisting piece. I enjoyed the mellifluous flow and then… boom πŸ’₯… “until I realize it was all an illusion, a delusional fantasy…” πŸ‘ˆπŸ€£πŸ€£ what a twist! Proves you mastered well this art of writing (twists are beautifully surprising). Did I say how much I enjoyed this? Well i really did. You’re a great poet, a gifted story-teller and, now even overally, a good person to relate with. I looked at that mirror and saw the poem through and through. πŸ’–β€πŸ’–πŸŒΊ

      1. You’re most welcome, Daph. πŸ’–πŸŒΊI love twists, by the way, especially when they come towards the end of a writing like this, they make a writing memorable to the reader. I do enjoy using them too sometimes. This is just so wonderful indeed. ❀

    Might be just an illusion but remember that your thoughts create your reality. So add to it or send that one out into the universe. The Universe conspires to get you what you want. Believe it. I wish you miracles.

  3. Very nice, I think you glitched out of my reader view. I was used to you posting sporadically but… I will try to unfollow and refollow, I’ve heard it happens. I missed reading you.
