I live in a dream
My own reality

I live in a meadow
Where I find myself

I live on a balcony
My own aerial view

I live in tomorrow
My own today

I hide in the cemetery
Beyond a shallow grave

I live in a forest
Safe under its canopy

I live in the ocean
A personal aquarium

I live on the edge
My own rebellion

I live in the novel
And in the story it tells

I am a façade
To be what I am not

I breathe freely
To know I am alive

I live without time
Living in each moment

I live on a cliff
About to fall

My mind is a trick
My thoughts are not real

I live in clarity
Once again, I am trapped in reality
