A Fictional Asylum

A poem, written by me. It describes the refuge I seek in fiction when everything real starts to go wrong.

POETRY!

I stencil all of my pain into my characters

All of my hopes, desires, dreams, wishes, hurt

Everything I’ve ever felt or wish I could feel

I make them suffer because then I know

Somebody, even if they don’t exist

Feels the same as I do

I muddle up fact, reality and fiction

And cradle myself in daydreams

I seek comfort from fictional beings

I seek comfort from they who will never exist,

Who will never cease to be anything more than ink on paper

Because at least they understand the twisted parts of me

And the feelings I try to bury deep within me

They of the real world watch as I weep, they look away in disgust

But at least my fiction cares

And holds me while I descend into oblivion.
