a new reality

where we stand is miles away
from where we once were
how we got here, I don’t know

reality eludes us now
we ignore and blind our eyes to the truth
a truth that if we could bear to stand
would wound us eternally

for the truth is
that our reality is not real
we have created this game
to pretend and to play and to act
so we can become one again
to pretend that our evils never existed
that the pain we caused was not real
that the scars on our chest are merely scraps

as pain fades so does reality
so now we stand outside looking in
at who we used to be
where we used to be
miles away

happy, together, and blissfully insane.
