Delusion

Delusion

I wandered through
the forest
The moonlight
lighting my way
I came upon
a stationary horse
and I thought
I heard him neigh
 
He moved suddenly
hearing my approach
Turning to face me
I noticed the horn
This beautiful creature
moving elegantly
like a gazelle
was clearly a unicorn
 
I moved closer
in silence
wanting to touch
the mystical illusion
As I reached out
he disappeared
in an instant,
It was just a delusion
