In the dark of the night
While the world lies sleeping
Something inside me awakens
And stretches to fill up the spaces
Between my fingers.
It holds my hand and guides me
To a realm unexplored.
A land where I can live any story,
Rewind or fast forward,
To any life of my choosing.
I am a master of disguise
As I discard one mask after the other
Till I find the appropriate one
To fit my mood.
I am a warrior with a sword in my hand
Slashing deeply at the tendrils of seduction
That darkness weaves around me.
I am a singer of emotions
Stringing along random words
Till every song describes
Exactly how you feel.
I am a concubine
Sharing my love instead of my body.
Left behind with a warm bed
And a cold heart.
A fighter, a lover,
A superhero under cover,
A beggar or a saint
Asking people to have faith.
I am everything yet none
Can fully cloak me in their skin…
The clock chimes loudly
To bring me back to reality.
I look around at the life I truly have
And put my pen down once again.
Tomorrow will be a new story to write.
