i live in the borderlands,
between reality and imagination,
just this side of fantasy.


reality is okay.
i visit there
to check my mail,
earn a few dollars,
pay some bills,
buy groceries.

 

reality is an okay place to visit
but, i wouldn’t want to live there.


i’m happiest in my mind
where I filter my thoughts
like an answering machine.
i delete the negative,
dwell on the positive.


people may see me walking alone.
they don’t see the beautiful woman
at my side
with her hand in mine.


i may be seen sitting at a table, alone.
nobody sees the delicate hand,
with the magic fingers,
sliding up my thigh.


or, the passionate kiss
being planted on my throat,
the fingers running through my hair.


where i work
people see me smile.
they think I enjoy my job.
they don’t know me.

  1. Thank you for following my work. I dig your take on reality. As Einstein once said, “reality is an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.”

  18. Dennis…whew, I could have written similar words, as if reading my mind, but more eloquently. It’s comforting somehow to know I am not alone in my musings, even if unknown in reality. Betty
