Reality Is Not Enough

Reality Is Not Enough

A Poem by The Nameless

To us who live with vivid imagination, reality is just not enough.

When things get rough and times are tough
When reality is just not enough
I close my eyes to try and escape
Take the time to myself before I wake

When I’m on the verge of tears
I fantasize to hide my fears
I blind myself to hide the pain
Even though I may seem insane

Reality is just too bare
All you can do is sit and stare
There is nothing you can change
Except to face another day

The truth is that I lie every day
And “It’s bad!” is what they all say
But once again it proves that this
Is euphemism, just a little twist

I do admit that lies can be bad
They can cause many to be sad
And when the truth doesn’t come out
Someone will eventually find out

But I lie to make myself survive
A lie I think can save a life
A lie can be good or bad
The lie lies completely in your hands
