"We stopped checking for monsters under our bed because we've realized they were inside us."

These delusions were my fantasy
to break out of actuality
when i succumb back to reality
take me back to when it was you and me

i know Im defective, imperfect in disrepair,
cause my hearts tattered, disheveled, threadbare.
and im lost for words to tell you how I feel
but in the end what we had was never real.

you’ve got my heart running in circles for eternity
and from the start i gave you more then just a piece of me,
and i thought you were my prince once upon a time
but your just a jester playing tricks with my mind

theres no need for pretend
cause this ain’t no story book end
your an idiot, illiterate,
your minds so just full of it

now read the words from my lips,
hope you realized what you missed,
now I'm leaving, I'm gone,
cause it’s time to move on.

Very inspiring. Great work, keep on writing. You're already great, and you can get even better by continuing to write like this and more. Exlpore different topics too, you'll get even more ideas :D Best of luck!! <3

I really liked this! You should keep it up :) May I make one suggestion though? Instead of saying "succumb back to reality," maybe you could simply say "succumb to reality." It's just a thought. I'm not trying to step on your toes or anything, because I really do think this poem is good. Keep writing :)
