Maladaptive Daydreaming

Rating: 5.0
I built a world in my head
Didn't realize I got stuck in it
But then you came along
And shattered it all
My now fractured fantasy,
Was once my only escape
I craved that life
I dared to hope, and I dared to defy
My desire made me bold, made me foolish with bravery
Oh, how insolent had I been to think my vision could become my reality
Now you laugh, you sneer, and you mock me
How could I have ever been so ambitious,
Constructing, carving, creating and crafting
Fabricating and forming in my own fashion
Stitched with precision until it became perfection
I had made the cloth of my illusion
But you ripped it up and shredded it to pieces
You brought me back to the reality which I tried so hard to escape
My cruel circumstance, which crushes my conception,
My dreams took flight
Only to crash and burn
An inferno of scorn shrouded it to shame
My beautiful world is now up in flames
