Sweet sweet fantasies?

Don’t say a word, there’s no need. You knew this was coming. Yes, you knew it but didn’t want to face it. Do I think you’re blind? Of course, I knew you saw this coming! But for a while, if only a perfect while you could pretend this wasn’t happening.
How sweet it is to live in our perfect dream world, even if at the end of the day you come home and realize it was only a fantasy of yours. Yes, another one.
What? Do you think we’re not entitled to have them?
Fantasies are always there, making a grab for you. And we, oh hopeless mortals, let them in and fill our souls with the sunshine they bring. And the warmth…
And it’s all a fake, because after all, it was just another fantasy. It’s not real. It’s just something that happened in your mind and you end up ruing the day when you mind made it up. Made it ALL up.
But anyway, that’s how our minds work. You make up something sooo big, from something sooo small.
Just a little unexpected detail that makes you smile. But then, it’s an important fact for you. And immediately engines of your mind start working and working. And the small detail becomes an image. And that image grows, slowly at first, but it grows. Oh, so big it grows until you feel full of life and you smile and you smile, and your heart it’s full to bursting.
Reality comes crashing down on you and you can’t help it. The big image your mind created explodes like an overblown balloon. There it goes that fantasy of yours… right to the trash can. And you feel worse than when it all started.
Is it worth? Who knows? It depends on your point of view. Of where you’re standing.
But don’t you ever wish that just once, just this one time, a fantasy could become reality? Is it just wishful thinking? I hope not…
