I could never dream
without giving my dreams
a chance to become reality.
It would be like watching a flood
from a mountain,
without ever being able to be dragged away
by the force of its waters.
Fantasy soothes
but it doesn't heal
it barely touches but doesn't touch
it moisten your lips
but it doesn't quench one's thirst
and only when I will be old
and with no strength
I will climb that mountain
to only live on memories.
