Mirage



The Parapraxis Project Blog

Across the broken boulevards of forgotten promises,

A figure stands-

An incomprehensible shadow of no one.


The shadow recedes like the horizon-

But its presence much more honest.

The figure beckons for the traveler at the end of a dark tunnel-

A mirage though it may be, it cannot be a lie.


Empty promises never were so life-like;

Flying dreams were.


"Should I go? I must live but leave not..."


The end of the tunnel comes closer-

The figure grows in size-

A soft breeze upon the forehead makes him breathe.


The figure is lost- his life regained- the seventh heaven.


The traveler never was, the figure will forever be:

For hope was it that led us so far,

And hope will it be that will lead us farthest.


The journey is yet to begin--

Into those unknown wonderlands

Which poets have written a world about, but

None had ever seen.
