Can't life be just a dream? (Shortened version)

Can't life be just a dream? (Shortened version)

A Poem by AllauraRose

Here is the shortened version of Can't life be just a dream?

I wish life was only a dream
my mask is falling off piece by piece
friends are starting to see me for me
my eyes are no longer mine, yet they are
how much longer can I keep this charade up 
I want to scream and cry at the same time
but I can't, I have to stay calm and act like nothings wrong
I'm living in a place thats not home, more like a prison 
I just want to leave but people tell me I can't
all these people are holding me back
I don't care anymore who I leave, I just want to...
my friends are falling apart, I am starting to hate my family 
everything is going wrong, yet everything is going right 
I can feel my sanity start to slip through my fingers
I wish life was only a dream and I could wake up at home....

A fifteen year old introvert who found a way to express herself. Some of my poems are okay and sometimes they are trash, just bare with me. I'm no Emily Dickinson, but I'm me. more..
