Make Believe

Crossing the line of make believe
Nothing in this world would be real
Repairing hearts, that are apart
By breaking the great golden seal

Breaking the frosted glass between us
The wrinkles enhance her beauty
Please don’t be scared, we’re all bared
By the changes doing our duty

Burning down the rice paper walls
Eyes charm like they did yesterday
Watching the crane, on windowpane
By tripping long along the way

Crossing the line of make believe
Nothing in this world would be real
Failing repair, no nothings fair
By the graveyard wishing tears heal

  2. It seems as if the line between make believe and reality is being somewhat lost these days amid the young teens endless ‘I wants’ and these are mostly hand held games for them to be lost in their own fantasy worlds. This piece of yours seemed to be saying that to me. Great writing.
