Your fingers bleed as you scroll through the sea of glass
Upon mirrors of infinitely reflected masks
Tapping to feed, craving the taste of the world's approval.

As you swim deeper into the fragments of illusion
Reality slowly leaves your vision
Drowned in the sphere you cannot efface
Smothered with faces upon faces upon faces upon faces

Struggling to ascend, to find the light
But you have sank too deep, too deep to fly
Chains of glass have shackled your feet.

There is no way, no way to flee
Than with your hands to break the glassen sea
Along with pretense and hypocrisy
Bleed once and be forever free.


When you write... just write.

Reality becomes a balancing act...
When slipping is not an option
