I want to apologize

For not being able

To enjoin your fantasy realms

Unfortunately this Crystalline Dream

I have been building

Is something of a selfish one.

While I am not immune to sin

I must absolve myself

When and where I can.

I am deeply moved by

Your affections

And they ring true

They even taunt and thrill me

When I am away.

I apologize again

For leading you up these mountain peaks

Only to see you grapple

With their stone faces

But I can assure you

That if your grip

On the world of the real

Is strong

You will not fall
