Unwarranted Manifestation

Hallucinations of the empty mind

Harbouring notions of a reciprocal kind

Steered the heart towards a promiscuous alley

Oblivious to the perils of this folly

Ocular banter initially felt like heaving a sigh

Emotionally fulfilling with optimistic high

Besotted, in a chase so obscure

The ecstasy turned out short lived and premature

With no dearth of citing an alibi

The significant other gave a go-by

Idealistic bubble all its air expend

The circuitous path soon culminated in a dead-end

Traversing from throes of fantasy to reality

Helped recognise the blurry thin line of immorality

A saving grace from falling prey

By banishing thoughts that would have led astray

Pondering if these thoughts were to course correct

Or an exercise to image resurrect
In an inquest, questions never blatantly deflect

Should one by no means experience a Soul connect?
