Is It All An Illusion?

images

Is happiness an illusion, just a pure delusion?
Cards in the hand of a master, going faster and faster
Playing tricks on the masses, as time passes
Disappearing into smoke, leaving the crowd to choke

Fooled again by the trickster, his hands move quicker
So again this joy from me is gone, yet I live on
Causing my heart to disappear, gone forever I do fear
Fool me once shame on me, will I ever be free?

He waves a wand, then everything is all gone
Leaving us in wonderment, as the final curtain is rent
Is happiness an illusion, just pure confusion?
Back to the start we begin, leaving me to wonder again©

  1. Happiness is only an illusion to those that are so miserable..
    It seems blurred and passing by swiftly…

  2. Beautiful poem… Yes, happiness could be defined as a fleeting feeling… almost an illusion… We are happy at times, just moments, I am guessing… sending best wishes 😀
