The Fantasy of Love

There is a yearning inside of me


which I cannot yet comprehend.


Why do I long for your embrace


when we have never exchanged one word.


I am in love with a fantasy.


I have imagined how your voice will sound


and what books you will like to read.


I picture us laughing


about a shared point of reference


when we have no shared experiences.


My mind has developed a persona which does not exist


and has attached it to your body


without your permission.


You have no imperfections,


no annoying habits.


I envisage the clothes that you will wear


and the presents I will chose for you with love and care.


But I have no right to look into your future


and seek to form it as I chose.


My role is to guide,


to nurture,


but most importantly to love.


I am not in love with a fantasy.


I just love my unborn son.
