Lose Myself 

I delve into a reality that is not mine. 

I get lost in words that are not mine. 

I lose myself in thoughts that belong to people created in my head. 

Their actions seem to impact me more than those around me.

My mind is caught up in a fantasy. 

A world where good trumps evil;

A world with solutions undeniably present;

A world where magic thrives;

A world filled with wonder;

And a world where anything is possible.
But, I have to remember to come back to reality.

To live the life that belongs to me;

To live in a world where evil prevails;

Where everyone is too scared to do the right thing;

To live in a world where problems grow in size, and solutions float farther away. 

To live in a world filled with monotony;

Where wonder ceases to exist;

A world where possibilities diminish.
I therefore choose to bury myself in the world where everything is easier.

Something Lost

To lose something irreplaceable-
Is to lose a piece of your being.
This something, which has been with you all your life,
Is suddenly wrenched away, by unseen hands.
And life comes to a halt.

To lose something irreplaceable-

Is to lose a piece of your being.

This something, which has been with you all your life,

Is suddenly wrenched away, by unseen hands.

And life comes to a halt.
Never before has it occurred to you,

That this thing-

This thing you’re so attached to-

Could one day be lost forever.

Life goes on without it,

But something seems to be amiss.

So a quest for a replacement commences.

Something akin to it is found.

But, no voids have been filled.

The voids have merely been covered up

With fragments that easily come undone.
The search is continued in vain,

With an unrelenting hope

That the void inside you

Will cease to exist.

Unknowingly and unaware of it,

Life without the thing, seems easier.

Life continues.

And Hope navigates you through it.
