Illusion surrounds at the crossroads of hope
Like a chain of faux pearls on a long lock of hair
Lined up one after the other
Braced to break
To be scattered
To be chased
Fear and uncertainty
From the bottom of the heart
Nerves shaking
Quaking
Jangled from the start
Penned in by longing
Which way to go?
Rebel and stay?
Or go with the flow?
But ding!
Ta dah!
That’s it right there!
The illusion can freeze
Or propel one afar

    1. This way, that way, either way, neither way… as long as it’s forwards, it’s all good.
      Thanks, Prenin!

  3. This one really goes trippingly, and I particularly like the say-aloud properties of, ‘Like a chain of faux pearls on a long lock of hair’.

    1. Thanks, Col… I wanted something seemingly fragile there.
