Illusion

Illusion

A Poem by Damian Alan Gray

I was there with you
Upon the steps of the cathedral
In the twilight


Dripping of Christ
Of the stars,
Of the sun.

I was there with you
Upon the sand
Waves of foam crashing at our heels.

What has come has gone to the sky.
And, what has come of it?
Nothing short of illusion.

Is this a referrence to Christ inthe 'Footprints in the Sand'?

What has come has gone to the sky
and what has come of it?
Nothing short of illusion.

The end has a feel of despair. The footprints in the sand were Christ's but was He ever REALLY there?
