Desires Are Forbidden Here

There are places I go in my mind
Where fantasies seem so real at times.
What I hunger for is very clear
But desires are forbidden here.
Monsters of madness
Darken my dream.
People I encounter
Are not as they seem.
I wear a painted smile
In a land of no tears.
I search for my courage
In a land of no fears.
The things that I want
Are the things I can’t obtain.
I reach out to touch them,
But they move further away.
Running blind, I go nowhere;
My destination is not revealed.
Looking behind, I see nothing
But the darkness on my heels.
I am lost and alone
In a world of no tears,
Forsaken and benumbed
In a world of no fears.
