Analysis of Love's delusion.

Memories of the past fuse into the future
the here and now a void
infused by loves delusion.

Past is past yet memories invade my heart and soul
how can I forget you
when your love makes me feel whole.

Perhaps I'm fantasising, I'm living in a dream,
but sometimes dreams come true
and I want to live my life with you.
