And so it came to pass

as all grand illusions do

that fantasy was truly


But here’s an idea

take it and craft it

believe what you will

and mix it with passion

Place it with thunder

add a dash of lightning

Lie with it in a darkened field

with the stars breaking the solitude

It’s only an idea

nothing to be terribly afraid of

Let me see it

a tiny flicker of life

burning out in the cold

something that tells me

I’m not alone

with this idea running rampant

a ferocious beast beating through my breast

Knocking on all the doors

an idea without rest.
