A Dream Come True


Here, you find
What you’re looking for.
But, will it be
What you need?

Perhaps, with luck,
It might be
What you have always wanted,
Or, at least, what you thought you did.

Now, it’s here,
And, perhaps, it is not the same
As your fantasy.
It is not what you dreamed about.

Then, what is it?
Is it just a distraction?
A passing phase?
A mistake, even?

We build up our expectations
To the highest of peaks,
Hoping, wishing, yearning…
But when it comes, we realize:

It is only an illusion.
