Do you live in a 2D world?

Sometimes I wonder
If you live in a 2D world
The people around you
Just figures on a TV screen
Is life so flat and meaningless
That all you do is sit and dream?

Do you see me?
Can you hear me?
There, in your 2D world
Life is calling
Opportunities falling
And all you do is sit and dream.

You go through the motions of life
Breathing, smiling, talking
But never feeling
I can't help but wonder
Are you lost in your 2D world?
Because all you do is sit and dream.

I know exactly what you mean. Sometimes life can be very two dimensional. Interesting read.

Thank you. It's an odd feeling, isn't it? There are some days when life feels very flat. Unreal, almost. I think it may be a sign of impending insanity when your fantasy novel begins to feel more real than life. :)

Thank you very much! And all I have to say to that is -- Ditto.
