My Favourite Game is Imagining

Mesut Selvi 1957 (TURKEY)

My favourite passion is reaching you in my imagination.
Reaching you easily without any risk,handicap or destination,
Imagining you like an angel or a North Star is a different sensation.
Holding your sweaty hand and shouting my love to you again and again,
Starting to everything FromBegining and living EveryExcitement again;
Looking into your eyes and kissing you is my spiritual satisfaction.
Thinking you in different names and faces is my strange imagination.
With crowns on our heads,like a couple of king and queen,hand in hand,
Or like Adam and Eve,naked,with a big leaf and an apple in our hands,
Walking on the beaches of heaven with bare feet,calm and fearless,
Like a god or a goddess,stopping all wars and burying the battleaxes,
Distributing equally all of the items and treasures to people's hands,
All of these can only be possible in my fantastic imaginations&dreams.
It is very easy making your love a cup of wine to drink in one sip;
Or shaping you as Venus,Cleopatra,Marilyn,Madonna or a VIP,
Or building a magnificent TeamPark for only us or for all ex-lovers.
So,my favourite game has always been imagining when I had troubles.
I love imaginig different worlds while I'm escaping from my troubles.
I'm not only solving my problems and stopping my pains,by imagining
I also make my world colourful,joyful,hopeful and full of meaning.
