I need to wake up
and stop living in
this fantasy world
where promises
are never broken
and happiness
is the only emotion
and nothing ever
goes wrong

I need to wake up
and realize that
fantasies are
for children
and promises
are broken
and people
hurt each other
all the time

I need to wake up
and stop imagining
that nothing
can ever hurt me
and realize
that this world
is filled entirely
with pain
and nothing else
