Fantasy Fare

Truths
insignificant
in the path
of fantasies
fanfare

No charge
to take the ride
no height
restricted
age of old
days
of youth
bound
in the fairy
flossed
realm

No fee
to enter
upon dreams
in slumbers grasp
No cost
to cross
the bounds
of minds freedom

So they say…

What of words
that enter worlds
of wonder
of hope
of longing
to obtain

When stories
become ingrained
unretained
in your wayward thoughts

When images
repeat
with repossessed heat
Engulfing
your core
Eyes closing
to reality
in search
of the tastes
of more

What price
do we pay
to play
in fantasies dance
A romance
that captures
our souls
pleas

Screams
of haunted houses
tear through
hearts
Showering
lusts powers
that leave chills
as clarity
ghosts
the smoke screen

Fair?
No fare?
We continue to dream
In fear
of being trapped
within a world
with no possibility

We play
out our roles
We pay
with our souls
All for a moment
of reprieve
from paying
our daily tolls

So
we let down our hair
in a breath
of unaware
In hope
there may just be
more
to this
than fantasy

    The interchanging role of fantasy, dreams, and reality and the blurred lines between them is a fascinating subject. But it seems there’s more to this piece than just a discourse on the subject. It’s more … personal … longing, wishful thinking, questions asked but not yet answered.

    In any event, well done. Very well done. *cue the applause.
