Reality

When I was a little girl if I had a bad day,

I would simply close my eyes & make it all go away.

I’ve always had this special talent of disappearing into my head

Shifting reality to fit into the story I created instead.

When I opened my eyes again everything was brand new,

I wasn’t really me and you weren’t really you.

With the snap of my fingers I was an actress in a role,

I never used it to be cruel, I just used it when life was dull.

Even as an adult I make up these universes in my head

To escape the monotony, the reoccurring dread.

Every once in awhile I have this sobering, sudden fear

That I’ve slipped far into the role, that reality’s become unclear.

  1. Reality is over-rated anyway. ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜€

    The law of attraction and most spiritual teachings say that reality responds to your wishes anyway (so long as they’re not diluted by conflicting thoughts and desires). ๐Ÿ™‚
