Create My World


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.

Under thy long locks thou may'st have the scall
But after my making thou write more true!
