When you compare the sorrows of real life to the pleasures of the imaginary one, you will never want to live again, only to dream forever.

I just want to scream until my lungs give way
Exploding with the stress I have tucked away
No fight left in me, the spark fizzled out
I'd give any possession to escape this route
My sense of purpose lost
No gain is worth the cost
Tried so hard to win but always lost
Forever reaching for perfection but never tall enough
"I'm okay, promise"
Please call that bluff.

Sometimes, I sit back and watch the stress of life wash over me like a huge wave. This was one of those times. Writing this poem enabled me to escape to the surface, for at least a minute, before going back under.
