Not As It Was

"Not As It Was," by Danny Lyons


Like a floating spot
In the eye, It wasn't there.
[Not the way you saw]

Not the way you felt.
It was simply never there.
[Not the way it was]

A mirage. Cruel illusion.

The trickster got you.
Hoaxer. Practical Joker.
[And you bet on it]

Bought, for a moment:
Conclusions from conjecture.
[You had it all wrong]

Like a floating spot,
Moving the more you watch it.
[A figment of you]
