Just “One Word” Away (“Fantasy”)

written by: Phyllis P. Colucci



One word becomes one idea, becomes one sentence, becomes one poem, becomes one story. It must start from just “one word”. Today my one word is “Fantasy”.



“Fantasy” accompanies me on many of life’s journeys. She is my very best friend and trusted companion. She never allows me to walk alone. We share experiences that are only possible through dreams. We find our own utopia through images and hallucinations, which we design through emotion and heart – and we contemplate on what could be.

We’ve seen the greatest love stories past the shadows of reality. We lived those love stories in a world of imagination. We felt those love stories through our flesh and blood; then we shared the most intimate secrets of those experiences. We’ve listened to the most beautiful melodies from voices of angels. We sang along, and swayed from side to side amongst the choir of the Gods. We flew through the heavens past cotton-ball clouds and landed safely on illuminated rainbows. There we sat for hours, just two close friends – chatting, giggling and sometimes crying about the chaotic world below us. The world we call home. The world we will return to, once again.

I do cherish spending time and special moments with “Fantasy”, and she loves spending time and special moments with me. Ours is a relationship of unconditional loyalty; one of hope, honesty, peace, joy, comfort, love, respect, and deep desire. There is never any judgement or criticism between us – just warm smiles and total acceptance. I met “Fantasy” one magical day, when I stared into my mirror looking for answers. She stared back at me. I was mesmerized. We looked so much alike. Once our eyes locked, the wondrous journeys began.



When you’re searching for answers
Look no further than the mirror in your room
“Fantasy” will greet you there
A magical friendship will be in bloom

Your destination – “Utopia”
Emotions running high
Images are boundless
Where logic can’t deny

Past the shadows of reality
You will find your greatest loves
You will hear the voices of the angels
Echoed by gentle turtle doves

You will join the choir of the mighty Gods
Singing melodies in perfect tune
Shouting rhythmic notes of triumph
To the sky, the stars, the moon

You will travel through the heavens
Ducking past cotton clouds of fluff
Sitting on illuminated rainbows
Chatting and giggling about life and stuff

Just you and “Fantasy” arm in arm
A friendship so pure and good
Shared secrets, cherished moments
A loyal bond – Existing as it should

Tears of love, tears of sadness
Journeying home through shadows of reality
Back home to the mirror in your room
To the place you will return quite soon
Where “Fantasy” resides…as she waits for you
Until you meet again, as close friends do!



When you are looking for life’s answers, just stare into your mirror. There you will find a dear friend named “Fantasy”, who will stare right back at you. The image will mesmerize you, as you both look so much alike. Your eyes will lock, and off you’ll go; past the shadows of reality, and into your secret world where dreams come true.
