I created a dream world to escape the pain of my reality…

It was a place I could finally forget the nightmare I was living in but even in fantasy…

I wasn’t truly free….

Because I was just running from one pain to another…

When the answer was never outside of me, it was in my unresolved issues with my birth father and mother….

I was abandoned before I even knew their names…

And then given to a family where love was just an empty game…

It shattered me in so many ways…

I lived through lifetimes in mere days…

And it left me broken…

They silenced my heart and stole every word I left unspoken….

I couldn’t live with that pain so I created another story…

But now the lines between truth and fiction become lost and blurry…

I chase after the love I couldn’t find in me…

And it created a heartbreaking dependency…

Deep down I know it’s all just fairy tales…

The scars are hidden in the finer details…

I was broken, but I had hope for their love anyways…

But they carved unworthy in my own name…
