Reality beckons
its call is conclusive
reality threatens
with real life conclusions
Seduction is lessened
when forcefully questioned
coercively tender
reality beckons
the fantasy steers
reality guides
on fantasy’s fears
reality dines
digesting it slowly
seduction is lessened
so clearly so lonely
are those that are questioned
for granted they give
with famine they take
while fantasy blurs
what’s really at stake
sinking so deeply
off love’s lonely shores
dying discretely
for those they adore
I’d sacrifice all
to fantasy’s call
regardless how high
I’d let myself fall
My body is yours
mind, soul, and my tendons
you seep through my pores
but reality beckons
