Escape to Reality

Watch the people

Watch

Who they aren’t in public

Who they are in private

How they love each other

and hurt each other

 

I weave together

a world of make-believe

to delight the senses

Escapism

It’s what we all crave

is it not?

 

If my reality and your fantasy

and your reality and my fantasy

are intertwined

Could it then be said

we are living our fiction?

 

I create illusion

in a fictional world

 

But your reality

is fiction

A discreet

deceit

 

We use

diversion and

deviation and

deflection

To keep the illusion alive

 

We build intricate webs

to catch

each other

 

And opened eyes

see things that cannot be unseen

 

Hold on to the fantasy

that is your reality

 

Or be prepared

for the fog to clear
