Unshed tears
running lines from a movie
comparing the two by side
An aching spasm in my breastbone
where fantasy tries to penetrate
but encounters truth at the turn
It’s useless to think
hopeless to dream
medicate the lies with escapist-
melodrama and romanticism
Searching for release
waiting for a time
where this melody
may never be reality.
