Pinpricked

Pinpricked

The bubble leaks its charmed air

Ssss

Ssss

Ssss

Begins to collapse

Twists

Turns

The magic of the spell is broken

As the elasticity of this gift

Crystallizes

With each outflow

Hardens

Contaminated

By doubt

Indecision

Blunt reality

Fears

So the bubble bursts

Dissolves

Disappears

Becomes a memory

Of a pathway never taken

Another might have been world

Never explored

Dream trumping reality

Wins another round
