Nothing but the Real Thing!

Counterfeit Love the False Love

There is nothing more devastating then to find out that what you thought was the real thing is not the real thing. Things don't always appear to be what they look like. Many people have ventured out to the other side of the fence thinking that the grass was greener on the other side. Only to find that what they believed to be excitement, and rapturous love, turned out to be pain, heartache and sorrow. Why?

Because it wasn't real, forsaking their significant other, children, jobs and much more on a fantasy. Something that appeared so real, that you would give up everything for it. And in the end to find out that its like fools gold pretty on the outside -nothing on the inside. I liken it to cotton candy, sweet to the taste, but has no substance. Funny thing about fantasies is that a fantasy cannot live up to reality. The fantasy is always more colorful, and something that can't be truly obtained. So many people run after their fantasy and then when they get there they find out that it falls short of their expectations.

Reality cannot live up to Fantasy, it dwells in the realm of imagination and delusionment. It is a place in the mind where dreams hide. Governed by wishful thinking. Now I know you all know what I'm talking about. We have all been there, coveting something that is hidden in the heart and mind. Falling for that moment of sheer pleasure only to find in the end that it is empty lust and once there, it is real hard to get out- without being burned.

The seducing spirit has captured the soul and has chosen to have its own way, and when it's done, you're left broken, despired and alone. You've traded everything for it. That wink of the eye, that soothing tender voice, that all together lovely fragrance, the thrill of the moment, took away your essence of reality and sensibility.

Its best to not stray to the other side, but stay where you are, there's nothing like the real thing!
