    Everything is not what it seems.

    My smile usually hides my tears.

    And so through all the illusions

    and hallucinations I have had; through thought, I have come back to a place of self and understanding. What is the meaning of life? Is it to live and further our own self improvement or to to become something greater? I don't know, but I feel that it is as if the wheel of...

    I was out with the staff the other night,

    we had dinner and drinks. Boring as usual, a bunch of middle aged tired parents. Moaning about how hard we work. Until a new guy, who did his training with us this year began chatting to me. He is only in his early twenties, a baby in my eyes. He wouldn't be what you would call...

    This is only true when it comes to sex,

    intimacy and love. I have so many things I want to try so many hidden desires. They cannot be fulfilled with my partner. Yes some I have mentioned some of the lighter desires. But they make him uncomfortable and make me feel like a big weirdo for mentioning them. So they are...

    In a Different World, I Am Strong, I Fight For People. I Can Suffer For Them.

    In the real world, I am weak. I cry for hours and feel terribly alone. In the real world, I am afraid of people, I can't share my feelings well, I'm confused and live in a flock of emotions that I just don't understand.   In the real world, I...

    My partner is a bad tempered domineering bully.

    We have just come through Christmas and I was walking on eggshells the whole time so as not to upset him. I'm sick of his bad moods and the way he shouts at me over nothing. His main problem is that he is insecure. He takes offence at the slightest thing and never admits he is...

    it's so true. reality,

    even if its not terrible, is mundane and familiar. But we can make things the way we want them to be in our fantasies. Reality bites!!!

    To me, they are one in the same.

    To think my fantasy is reality is what makes me who I am, and to carry on with the promise I have made.

    Another World Inside My Heart

    As I was young I always had the longing inside, and I watched the sky. Always up to somewhere were the stars shot, hoping that on a wishing star I might be able to fullfill my only wish... to go somewhere else. To another world, another realm. As the stars shot around in the sky...

    Recently I'm having problems facing reality;

    well not just recently actually. For as long as I can remember I have wanted to live as someone else and be something that is more than impossible in the real world. I can't really talk to anyone about it because I know they won't understand. I love the idea of having a reason...

    Fantasy Vs Reality

    I believe it's good to have a fantasy world because it's (usually) something to aspire to in real life.  It's your dreams of what you wish your life to be.  Although, some fantasies are better left in the dark!!  Plus, the fantasies I wanted when I was younger aren...

    Honestly, I prefer it

    so much, I sit in class and just daydream the whole time, and make my own story's. I do it so much, I can't even tell what's real half the time. What actualy happened and what was a dream, and they all think I'm crazy. But, whatever.

    I tend to day dream a lot.

    Whenever professors rant about irrelevant material that has nothing to do with the lecture I day dream for a bit. My thoughts are much more interesting than the real world. I'd very much rather get lost in my world and live in it. Besides, reality is scary enough and it doesn't...

    I love escaping to fantasy,

    but when you come back to reality it slaps you in the face really hard. Anime/Manga and music help me do that, but that only keeps you away from reality for such a short amount of time.
