My World This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

   It's a dark and cold world I don't live in

The funny thing is mine is worse

Did you ever build a castle in your head?

Can you retreat from the world?

The more I live, the more I try

And with age the more I doubt

In a desert, on the water, in the forest

I try to escape

I can leave this world for a second

But I pay for a year

A year of torture and anguish

Coupled with pain

Now I go away, take the nomadic trip

To the Eden of Unreality

And for the rest of the year I will pay the price

Happily suffering

To own a passport to a real life
