Duped

The destination was hazy

My longing was going crazy

I hastened to reach it faster

The desire to conquer grew greater

The nearer I approached, the more it receded

Logic seemed to be more and more depleted

Was it my imagination or was my destination within reach?

For my whole life for this only cause I did preach

Like a mirage it looked

Yet how come I was hooked

A staunch believer I was, duped by lies

My imagination's fruit reflected in my eyes

A voyeur I had become wandering without reason

I had set out to reach the horizon
