Am I Practical…

If I’m aware Hollywood depictions of love

are unattainable fantasies

while I hold on to the naive belief

they could be reality?

If I toy with the notion

of being long-lost royalty

or having superhero-like abilities

despite knowing these are impossibilities?

If I ignore the fact

that everything in life concludes

with no fanfare

or warning?

Perhaps I’m more of a dreamer than I thought.
