A tangible forest with ever growing vines 

Tangling its way throughout the mind. 

A slippery fog over a glass hill 

An adumbration of reality until you have your fill. 

A sudden branch of mystery and random 

A ghost of substance; an abstract phantom. 

A wish and want, but not feasible to some 

An open world, speak in any tongue! 

An urge to do, it happens if you please 

However, the mirage is just a tease. 

Make it what you want, make it how you will 

It will stick around, as long as you lie still.
