Poems that rhyme leave me cold
I long for words that are more bold
Give me tales full of dare
Grand knights of old and ladies fair
Battles won, feasts and laughter
stories that end, “happily ever after.”
I live in a make-believe world
people laugh at my game.
I’ve stripped away borders of reality
and walk between worlds
of fantasy layered with insanity.
Please do not cure me
save or redeem me
for I suffer not in this bliss
while you, locked in “science and truth”
live desperate lives filled with fear
telling me I’m crazy
while you drown in reality.
