Poem: Fantasy Becomes Reality

Poem Summary

Fantasy becomes reality is a poem about how as he gets older he no longer believes in fairy tales. He doesn't have time for fantasy in his life.

Until the moment he meets her. He sees the magic glowing in her eyes and begins tasting life in a new way.

He finds the missing sparkle in his eyes and feels like a child once more.

Fantasy Becomes Reality

The simple childhood joy

of believing all things are possible

vanishes into thin air as quick as a magic trick,

as the days rapidly pass

adding years to his life.


Not a moment left to spare for fairy tales

in his hectic detailed schedule,

focusing only on accomplishing the day’s demand.


All the dreams he fantasizes about are trapped

like a forgotten message in a bottle,

drifting away in the tide.


Until his eyes meet hers,

chuckling, with a little smile

at her childlike ways,

seeing the magic glow from her eyes

taunting him with temptation.


He taste life in a new way,

touching upon his lost dreams,

finding the missing sparkle in his eyes,

feeling like a child once more.

Hertha,

Thank you so much!

It is so easy for us to lose touch with that childlike magic as we get older.

Have a good day.

I love this poem. I love the magic in it.

At times we grow up so fast and we loose our spark and colour (magic) am glad his was restored.

Ann,

Thank you.

When in a relationship the magic between two people in love is not hendered by other influences which makes it like in the eyes of a child.

Take care.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on November 10, 2020:

Rosina,

Thank you.

Children always have a magic spark in their eyes.

Hence for him to find her magic he feels like a child once more.

Take care and have a great day.

Ann Carr from SW England on November 10, 2020:

How great it is to see the sparkle in a child's eyes and lovely to recapture it in a new relationship!

It's good the poem shows how he finds the missing sparkle in his eyes after seeing the magic glow from her eyes. While he feels like a child once again, she taunts him with temptation. This really shows the magical love between them. I am glad the poem ends on a positive note, Brenda.
