Illusions, a poem written by Dinka Bednjacic at
Luke Mckeown



written by: Dinka Bednjacic


I used to think
If I can settle under your skin
I would blend in your veins
Unleash a river of emotions,
Flow that binds us
Unite us for eternity

If my heart beats next to yours
I would be within your reach
I won’t be rejected
I won’t be forgotten

If we build ourselves a home
Where only the echo of music
And children voices
Fill the rooms
We will be fortunate

I used to think
If you ever leave me
I would go to the end of the earth
To find you

But it took a life time
To realise
Some dreams
Are pure illusions
And we are —
A mere dancers of life —
Holding onto a rope of sand…
