Those who feel emotional pain

Sometimes replace it

with physical pain.

 

Those with realities

that hurt too much for them to feel,

Sometimes try to replace it

with a world of their own.

 

The Liar’s World.

 

We create a world

in the corner of our minds

that we escape to

when things become too hard to bear.

 

Every time it hurts

we close our eyes,

and withdraw into our happy world.

 

We do this more and more…

until the two worlds jumble

tossed in a heap of wreckage.

 

And we can no longer tell

the two apart.

 

When you ask for one,

we give the other.

 

We tell of the world we

wish to live in.

 

Our hopes.

 

Our wishes.

 

Our ideals.

 

Rather than the realities.

 

We lie.
