Title: Mastery of Illusion
Summary: "This eternal sorrow is penetrated only by a single hope: the glimmer of chance that our only crime be the love we fight so frivilously to salvage..."
Mastery of Illusion
You smiled at me with such innocent, beautiful eyes;
the beauty of your lie disguised your practiced illusion.
With mastery found only in dreams you sang to me-
romantic tales of a love story lost long ago to time.
"We're all just awaiting our last dance" you whispered,
and like a fool, I readily drank your fabrications.
A love founded on an ocean of soul-shattering tears,
it can meet with only one fate in the end;
yet, as we continue on with the charade,
we can dance only to the rhythm of our heartbeats.
This eternal sorrow is penetrated only by a single hope:
the glimmer of chance that our only crime
be the love we fight so frivilously to salvage.
If we believe in the promise we made for tomorrow
then perhaps we will someday leave this nightmare behind.
You smile at me with such innocent, beautiful eyes
and for the very first time in my life,
the lie you told of our happily never-after is my sole desire
as we dance with the twinkling of stars in the heavens.
"Even unto eternity, the dream still beckons thee.."
