A Make Believe Life

A Make Believe Life

I dream away the fairy tales life says we are to lead
I loose the time allotted me in intricate imaginings
My thoughts created are worlds more filled with life than the one I pull oxygen from

Ideas for expansion so easily set aside
Creations for downsizing so readily ignored
Ways to accomplishment simply not taken

Turning inside to the perfect touches within the perfect moments
I succeed at everything by doing nothing and the earth turns the years

I sit alone in my childhood's prison as both inmate and warden
Existing inside a make believe life
I keep my little globes orbiting in fantasy
as my hands tick away at mortality
in the clock of my skin
