A Realistic Fantasy

Reality stood

outside my window

grinning

mocking

making grim faces

he painted a thousand sorrows

I smiled

he strung a hundred broken hearts together

I jeered at him

he showed me aging,caged in misery

I ignored him

He taunted my poor fate

no chance of finding a true mate

I thumped my chest

and showed him I am the best.

He turned and fled.
