I Hate This

I want nothing more to do with
This fantasy world I've created
Its flavor has become so stale
Like an abomination in my mind
Poisoning my heart and soul

The dreams that will never be:
Love that I will never find
Friends that I will never make
Needs that will never be met
Haunt me in my thoughts and dreams

It must be purged from my mind
Before it drives me insane
Like an emotional mirage it beckons
To me, taunting me with false hope
And I hate this; this lie
