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.
