It is an illusion…

but it is an illusion

to want to have

that what may never live

you’ll forever find

what was never there

if you continue to look

you might just see

why you never had it

but it is an illusion

to want to have

that what may never live

walk ahead

but look down that lane

what seems gone

is still hidden somewhere

away from your sight

but closer than you think

but it is an illusion

to want to have

that what may never live

what is in the now

may trickle down to the morrow

and if it does not

you will find it in your sorrows

and that what you lost

was it worth the grief

but it is an illusion

to want to have

that what may never live

  1. I read this poem 5 times, but I did not understand a word. Sorry!

    Could give some context. Would be nice to know what the author’s thoughts were when she wrote this poem.

    Thanks and sorry for being daft!
