Close Your Eyes

Close Your Eyes

A Poem by Crimson

So I was inspired by a story I found called 'Why.' , and I thought I would share my views on the idea...


Just another day, you wake up, get dressed, and you save the world.

You save the world with your epic sword skills, with your magic, with your mind when you overthrow an evil government.

You save the world with your trusty group of friends, or your one true love.

You almost die but you never do, someone's there to save you, or you come up with some amazing plan to save yourself.

You always have some epic battle music in the background.

Then, you open your eyes.

You wake up, in your bed, with your battle music playlist still on repeat.

You get up, face the day, knowing that when you get home,

you can go back, and save the world.

Go back to that wonderful place.

The giant city,

The old castle,

The academy of 'special' kids.

Which one will it be tonight,

who will you be fighting.

Because, when you close your eyes,

it's up to you.

You can leave this world behind and be that hero you've read so many books about.

That hero that just so happens to look like you, or the one that you relate to most.

You can be whatever you want to be,

You can be impossible.

You can find true love.

You can win.

Because this is the world where no one is judged.

Where no one has to follow the rules.

Where everyone is in a book, or a movie.

This is the place where you don't have to be ashamed of what you feel,

where you can be who you really are,

even if it's impossible to do in the real world.

You can escape,

just if you close your eyes.

Just if you dream it,

Your world is as impossible as you make it.
