Hiding Dream


This has gone beyond
Being only a game.
I've been hiding
My entire life,
And nobody has found me.

You need to have
A purpose or meaning.
I have neither.
I am not life,
Merely an existence.

To have a dream,
You need a future.
I have neither.
My future doesn't exist,
And my existance was just a dream.

I am in this
Dark place I have
Chosen as my
Hiding place,
I wish someone would find me.

I am alone, here,
But I am afraid
To come out of hiding.
Someone needs to find me.
Is anyone looking, anymore?
