    Drugs. My only escape.

    For some it's uppers, for some it's Molly aka X, for others it may be shrooms, LSD... For me, it's weed and vicodin. For the past 15 years. I often wonder what damage to my internal organs I've caused by such selfish hedonism. I often wonder how much money I could have saved...

    It's so boring and lonely in my reality,

    I want an adventure with the best possible friend I could have, even though they have faults, they are the people I dream of, but they're not real, so I'm just left in a depressed state when I wake up from my daydream.

    Let me escape... Let me dive back into my

    dreams and just surrender there because reality has me lost sometimes. Let me locate my soul in paradise, let me drift into serenity. Let me unleash the beauty I have that is being driven to darkness sometimes. Let me be free, free of this ache that throbs at the back of my head...

    Sometimes, I feel like living in my fantasies

    is a lot better than living in a boring realm we call as reality. Not only it is boring but also disappointing because you cannot fully control your life. People will always be there to affect you, use you or manipulate you for their own entertainment and that is really...

    I'm so much more fascinated by the thoughts in

    my head, the constructs of my imagination, and the dreams I have at night. This feeling I occasionally get surpasses boredom by light years, I'm not even sure what to call it anymore. Everything we see in front of us with our human eyes is reality, but I want more than that, I...

    That moment when I dream

    where everything is okay, and I have everything. Then I wake up and it's all gone. Yeah.. sometimes I wish I could plunge back to sleep, so I don't have to deal with all the hectic mess that life is.

    I think this whole reality thing is a lark

    really. It’s vastly overrated. I mean, if I didn’t subscribe to reality I could’ve forgotten about responsibility - who needs jobs, bills, and possessions anyway. If I didn’t, I could’ve stayed. I could’ve quietly slipped into a life with Faerylight, couldn’t I...

    I'm feeling bored of this situation.

    I'm tired of absorbing all these emotions around me. I just want to continue deflecting all the negative emotions but it doesn't leave me happy. It just leaves me neutral, empty. like I'm going through the motions, living a day to day life.

    Reality sucks, to put it bluntly.

    One of the main reasons I spend so much effort and time into my hobbies is because sometimes, I can't face reality. Daydreaming, writing fan fiction, enjoying video games, reading books, listening to music, all of these let me escape from life for a little while. Because you see...

    I have really vivid dreams.

    To the point I feel that they are my true reality and day to day living is the illusion. Such a shame waking up depending on the dream, having to supposedly wake up to the mundane.
