One more box left unchecked

slipping into my sadness like an old coat

too short on my arms, my wrists exposed

too tight around my shoulders, my back aching

who knew life compared to a worn out jacket

who knew i could be constantly let down by something that isn’t even real

maybe if i just fall far enough into my dreams i won’t have to wake uo

won’t have to return to the guilt I force myself to feel

maybe if i just slip into this too small jacket and submerge into too short dreams

that will be my reality

and the real world can be my simulation
