*Illusion*

Sneaking
through the grass
a serpent of illusion
turns out to be real
Her glassy skin
reveals thoughts
All wishes
hidden
in the deepest chasm
of hearts
Like a mirror
she shines
through the leaves
showing sunrises
and nights
She is horror
She is beauty
Sweetness from dreams
and anguish to fear
She is a paradox
Sometimes
a tangle of the inexplicable
then again
just obviousness of life
Illusion
The mirror of the heart
A danger
or a solace
All depends
on the owner’s soul
