    knocking at the front door
    large as kilimanjaro or so
    it seems / maybe my "altered"
    ego has skewed my perception
    to what is real what is fantasy
    what I need what I want
    maybe she is just too much
    and I too little maybe she
    is too shallow and I too deep
    she too light I too dark
    maybe I should try to find
    her in between those two
    occurences light/dark
    transformation into
    transportation into a side
    I never knew existed
    on the threshold of a
    discovery I search...
    I never knew shadows had
    reflections...they call it
    concrete tangible forms
    hers / I never held yet
    reaching two inches to what
    is miles away maybe I'm
    just thinking too much
    conning myself into
    confusion...of what is
    reality what is fantasy
    what is wanting what is
    needing.

    I agree, mzblkangel, this does make you think. This was so deep. The line between fantasy and reality can be a thin one indeed. Tight flow.
