The Place I Go

My mind
It wonders
Beyond me

It’s a bird
It’s a cloud
It is free

But please
Just stay
Away from me

This box
This case
What they call life

I scream
I cry
I lash around

All of it
Just a gimmick
Of what they call sound

All of them
Every one
They are not real

Only I
Myself
Can actually feel

It’s a hoax
It’s a cover
An enticing show

But this
It’s reality
For all they know

If only
If only
They could see

Just know what it’s like
To see…
Like me…

Then reality
No Reality
Just a place to go

But reality
Is reality
When they finally know:

Reality
Is reality
In the place where I go.
