For years I ran
To destinations anywhere
Searching for anyplace but here
Drowning in a cacophony
Of doubt and timidity
But now I’m standing
At the crossroad
Of my fractured fears
And demanding desires
Ready to adapt, to mutate
To dominate

Your betrayal has opened my eyes
I see the deceptive smiles and so many lies
Hear the hollow tinny of your laughter
The false Happily-Ever-Afters
And know your velvet touch covers a hard heart
That is so willing to tear me apart

I’m a mess
But I digress
This is overdue
And it’s about you
Not me
Don’t you see
I’m wide awake
Nothing is fake
But your reality
Is a fallacy
We’re an illusion
I’m done with this delusion

Some say I need a dose of reality
Sorry, I’m unavailable
Too lost and not looking for direction
I’m sliding off the map
Into imaginary adventures
Sailing into the unknown
Found focus reflected in dreams
Reality, don’t come looking for me

You’re right next to me
But I’m in solitude
My needs raw and nude
We’re so close
Yet so far apart
It tears at my heart
Can you feel me
Sense our separation
Our loves damnation
I’m slipping past
The invisible barrier
Into my chaotic mind
Going completely offline

Twilight is our time
Leave worries for dawn
At dusk our dreams
Spread and illuminate
You’re my stunning sunset
Become my sultry night
Fall into my darkness
I’ll catch your love and lust
His kisses promise
A tender, melting magic
It’s all an illusion
His hellos mean goodbye
It doesn’t matter
I urge him to show me
His teasing tricks
