Life Is A Fantasy........

is life but a fantasy
with no escape...

"anyway the wind blows
it doesn't matter to me"

you loved me and left me to die

never to return
"it doesn't matter to me"

life is up for grabs
let my heart be free

"anyway the wind blows"

for your love is gone
please set me free

"anyway the wind blows"
it's all the same to me.

I liked the repetition of "anyway the wind blows," and I often I wonder if life is up for grabs! Nice writing.

Well crafted, and I enjoyed the rhythm too.

Thank you all but the real thanks goes to Freddie Mercury and Queen. There will never be another with his voice.

Thanks for posting Melanie! Yes, Freddie was superb.

Someone once said to me of life, "you're free to make any choices you like, you're just not free of the consequences."

I, too, miss Mr Mercury; but I try to remember this: "If I'm not here this time tomorrow / carry on, carry on."

Nice work with this, Melanie.

I agree -- the repetition of "anyway the wind blows" worked nicely in this poem. I miss Mr. Mercury too. He was a rare talent.
