i is for illusion. #atozchallenge

My a-to-z theme is supposed to be small. My posts have been that. But, let’s face it… my real theme is poetry. I pretty much figured this would happen, but I thought I’d come clean and admit it. I hope you’re enjoying my alphabet.


i is for illusion.

Born from imagination
Reality could never match
The vision in her mind
He was not supposed to exist
She invented him from dreams
Yet his lines were perfect
Spoken in deepest whispers
Like he read from a script
Of the very words she wrote
She reveled in the illusion
But weakness and greed stepped in
Imagination tainted
Anticipation gone
Illusion shattered
Desperate for the fantasy
Was better than having it

A to Z challenge — a letter a day throughout the month of April (except Sundays) until we reach z.

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, sometimes blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.
