Living in a world constructed on lies.
A slave to this body, entrapped by my mind.
To have it all doesn’t suffice.
I forfeit this fight.
Tired of being told what’s right.
I follow the clock but my soul knows there is no such thing as time.
But I live the illusion and say hello to others as they pass me by.
This anxiety is building & I have nowhere to hide.
Too many memories from previous lives arise.
I wish I can die just to remember one more time.
But they don’t understand, they think I’ve lost my mind.
I see figures, fuzzy static ripples and waves all around me.
Constantly reminding me of the unseen.
Constantly reminding me of the dimensions that lie above me.
My days seem like a dream and my dreams feel like reality.
I come alive when I sleep.
I’ll live again when I’m dead.
I’ll no longer have to pretend to fit in.
Please God, be a friend.
Put this life to an end.
I’m just dying to see you again.
First of all, the picture…. I was “obsessed” with Wonder Woman when I was growing up. I was actually so over the moon for Wonder Woman that once, when I was really young, my grandmother and mother somehow made it possible for me to meet Lynda Carter. She was stunning. And still today, I am obsessed with Wonder Woman!
That piece was heavy. I can relate, of course… and that scares me to death. It also hurts my heart to know that you have experienced this kind of inner anguish. Please know that you are not alone. You are “NEVER” alone, kid.
Say, did you ever get the email I sent you???
Love you to the moon and back,
Thank you so much beautiful I am obsessed with Wonder Woman myself. I have a Wonder Woman charm on my neck. Let me check my emails.
Loved this piece.
