Create My World Poem by Rik Bertrand


Create a world of your own desires,
where all the heroes are all the liars.
Feel it full of empty visions,
idle love and indecisions.

Create a time where there’s no hope,
where life hangs by a rope.
Feel it full of empty dreams,
Where nothing is what it seems.

Create a space where you can run,
where sadness lingers in the sun.
Where hope has vanished needlessly,
where feeling love can never be.

Create a life with emotions lost,
where with every decision you pay a cost.
Where crying is the better way,
and the blues is with you everyday.

Create this world and you will see,
Through the eyes of lonely me.
