Real or Fake

Reality can be overrated.
Raindrops dance on windowsills
Like tiny elves, “Say, are you real?”
Firefly fairies blinking twilights’
Silent message reveal the
Secrets of the universe.
Logic whimsies in reverse to
Shift from precious to perverse
Looking for a soul to steal.
Quiet rainbows cast their net from
Red to green to violet
            Filling mind’s eye to distraction.
            No room left for sad regret.
Are you real or should I quake to
Feel the magic that you make?
Will you be there when I wake to
Ease my mind lest I forget?
Peaceful dreams to fill my night
All forgotten with the light.
Phantom promises you make.
Are you real?
Are you fake?
