"When a person is lucky enough to live inside a story, to live inside an imaginary world, the pains of this world disappear. For as long as the story goes on, reality no longer exists." -Paul Auster

This isn't true
This isn't real
I'm sitting here in this nightmare
Watching colors rush by
Waiting for it to be over
Just waiting patiently
Because it has to be over soon
I will wake up
I always do
But, it's taking so long
I don't know how much more I can take
Before I break down
Because this nightmare'
I'm alone in this nightmare
Surrounded by darkness
I can't see in front of me
And there's nothing behind me
There's no support
This terror in my head
Consuming all of me
I feel empty
The soul has been washed out of me
Now I'm living in night
With little hope of waking up
But I'll just sit back
Hide my head
And wait
