The fantasies shimmer

and shape shift

in their efforts

to cling to our attention

they whisper promises

of pleasure

without consequence

and success

without evidence

of sweat

or any other effort

but the reward of fantasies

is only more fantasies

to dance like stars around our heads

like fairies that slip through our fingers

and laugh at our persistence

in grasping for images we can never hold

while ignoring

a love that could be truly ours

a life that could be honestly good

in the reality we were meant to live
