Beautiful Illusion

Visions conjured taken straight from her dreams
That she should come to know and cherish
Enchanted by the beauty of that magical world
In which she found herself longing to dwell

Accepting the offerings though strictly forbidden
Blinded by the brilliance emanating from within
Helpless to turn back no matter the consequence
This newfound reason her elixir for existence

Sitting in wait as the hand sweeps continuously
Circling the face whilst counting the seconds
This ever present element so aware of these days
Her heart taking flight with the passage of time

No slowing it down – moving forward – going back
Wrapped in loneliness she watches it pass
It was there for a moment and then it was gone
As those shadows etched on wood reflecting the glass
