In My Other Universe

In my other universe
Love does not disintegrate
Life and the cosmos do not momentarily wink out
Trust does not become a fantasy

In my other universe
Cold, cruel witch only describes a fairy tale
Material gain never trumps love
Heartlessness falls only to the machinations of openly vile people

In my other universe
I’m intact
I’m unscathed
I believe in truth and trust
I love without fear of betrayal
I walk light and carefree
For she defines integrity and longevity in the world of romance

In my other universe
People use objects, not other people
Betrayal stands as conviction against character
Dreams exist for destinies, not destruction

In my other universe
Fantasy rules
For nothing in it matches reality
Cold, cruel truths find no purchase
Because my other universe never existed…
