Real Life

I fight the urge
to fade away
so quietly

I want to be remembered
to be of dreams
with true feeling

not to be emptied
or meaningless
but full of twists

My plot takes thought
to comprehend
cause my life is real

I’m not a fantasy
nor a nightmare scream
just a real live guy

With real life fears
hopes and dreams
like the one I have with you

I’m not drawn with a cape
nor shaded in grey
the Empire doesn’t wait for me

Archaeologists won’t unearth me
and the Titantic went down before me
cause I’m so non-fictionly

I fight to the urge
to firecracker my words
and say so prolifically

cause I just want to hear
the real thing cause we
don’t need another super hero coming
