"You asked for it, you bastard!"
Realm of EscapismPlug it in,Realm of Escapism by ~ShuyinTheEnigmatic
Turn it on,
Away I go
Into the unknown
I've seen the flamboyant setting
Of the fifteenth century,
And the harsh, dystopian future
It's all so stirring to me.
Like exploring an uncharted land,
I gaze in awe at the digital mystery;
As beautiful as gold itself,
Glittering in the angelic light of the sun.
A slew of beautiful colors dotted around;
A serene escape from the dreariness of life.
This realm of escapism is my comfort
When it feels like the world has left me.
I would like nothing better than to live there forever,
To take my hobby and become immers
My LifeIf I get a job, will you look at me differently?My Life by ~ShuyinTheEnigmatic
If I work like you do, will you stop giving me cold stares?
Will you finally stop treating me
Like I'm the laziest bum in the world?
Can I escape your iron grasp?
Your emotionless responses
Don't fill me with confidence;
They just make me afraid
I've got a debt as gargantuan
As a hundred-meter wall;
Barring the progress to the life
I desperately want to live
But it's not just money that I owe;
It's your own kindness that I can't
Escape from now; it makes me think,
Should I stay here forever?
I hate to disappoint you,
But I hate living in your shadow;
In fact, I've hated being so shackled
Take a LookSometimes I like to take a lookTake a Look by ~ShuyinTheEnigmatic
And think about the things I took
My inspiration from; the nooks
And crannies I inspected.
The people and the art they made;
From memory, they'll never fade
Because of the impact they laid
Unto here, unexpected.
I'm talkin' 'bout my mind, of course.
I'm tryin' not to beat a horse
So dead, cause, hey, my own remorse
Is in my mind, infected.
Everyone has said the same
'Bout how they got a bit of fame
From lookin' at the things that came
To their own lives; ya get it?
So don't feel bad if people say
You're unoriginal, cause, hey,
They made their choice; they went and paid
Attention to your work.
