Burn

I burn myself in memories
I burn myself in thought
I burn myself in the thousand futures that I do not want

And these are the worlds I create
The illusions I cherish
And these are the lives I hate
The reasons I perish

I burn myself in subtleties
I burn myself in fear
I burn myself in the million voices that I cannot hear

I dream of infinity
And I burn in reality
I wish for anonymity
And I burn in society
I beg for somebody
Who burns just like me

I burn myself in fantasies
I burn myself in me
I burn myself in the billion dreams that I will never see
