Expectations: Disguised illusions

Expectations: Disguised illusions

A Poem by Floating on the feathers of a dandelion
"

A friend said my expectations are nothing but illusions. He rendered them to be very illusory which basically made me write this...

"

Fancy illusions,

Thus are my expectations named,

They are demons of imaginations beckoning insanity within,

Compelling thoughts of ever-intangible happiness,

Thoughts, just too fatal.

 

 

But the same friend re-phrased it, and said thats not what he had meant

 

Fancy illusions,

Thus are my expectations named,

They are angels of imaginations beckoning sanity within,

Compelling thoughts of ever-intangible happiness,

Thoughts, just too sublime.

Whether in the original version or in the rephrased your imagination has inexorable power and cannot be suppressed. Sublime are the so called figments of your imagination and they do beckon you beyond the constarints of reality.So if your expectations have been given the same origin it makes them all the more powerful and difficult to fulfill which will make you soar greater heights.Perhaps they will never be unappreciated by those who cannot identify and may go unrealised, but does it matter, do you have to scale them down? I simply loved this.

Compelling thoughts of ever-intangible happiness, ---- I believe we all have these.

I like how you have offered two very different, yet similar somehow, points of view...Great write!

I liked this.
Both of them.
They're both simple and short, yet very meaningful.
I feel that no words are unnecessary.
I especially liked the re-phrased version.

Wonderful write. =)
