Illusions fade fast to ashes

but the lingering after taste of past follies tastes even bitterer

recalling to mind age-old adages of once bitten twice shy, not all that glitters is gold

the heavy slam of silence…………………… what next you wonder

the cobwebs of tears blur your vision for an eternity that feels like an instant shot of bitter coffee

illusions that like a duvet shield you from the glare of reality

the alarm blares off and you fancy its only a dream………………….

deadlines come and past but somehow you stand tall, above restrictions and time

mirages keep the end so far even when it’s the tip of your nose

close your eyes and shut them, close your eyes and shut them fast

you’re convinced the lights are flickering

the cock crows and you wonder- ‘what’s the rush Sir?’

fear to get your feet burned, fear of drowning………… but if you step forward, the ground is cold and bare.
