Listening to every heart
Once there came this bright illusion
albeit a fallacy to my heart,
I fell for its deep deception
the delusions tore me apart.
Wonderment came with the chimera
and strong belief in the fantasy;
Awake would I from the hallucination,
away with the delusion from me.
This damn poor bit of humbuggery
this hocus pocus of the heart
ne’ermore the falseness for me,
from this mirage I shall depart.
That figment of imagination,
that trick of love’s daydreams
the errors seen in the machinations
are only that, a dream.
