A Way Out

A complete heart
A thousand fantasies
All of being loved
Sometimes at first sight
Sometimes over time
A chance encounter
A meeting of fate
Love no longer a dream
Love now a real thing
Smiles and laughter
Euphoria and happiness
Heaven and ecstasy
Until heartbreak strikes
A piece of the heart
Is painfully chapped away
And a door is closed
A thousand fantasies
Shrink to a hundred
Another year
Another lover
Then heartbreak again
Followed by more lost love
And another door closed
Until finally the fantasies
Stop coming at all
You don’t know
You begin to wonder
Will someone
Ever find a way through
With so much pain
And lost love
And all the doors closed
Fantasies killed by doubt
Even you yourself could fail
To find a way out.
