<p>Open sky, but I felt trapped.</p>
<p>Never asked 'why?' but I still lived like that. </p>
<p>Stars and comets were my favorite view, </p>
<p>Don't ask how I saw them even when I was trapped in a room. </p>
<p>I used to cheer whenever clouds showered, </p>
<p>It felt like my innocence was again powered. </p>
<p>It was blissful doom, </p>
<p>Don't ask how I felt it even when I was trapped in a room. </p>
<p style="text-align: left;">But it all crashed when I opened my eyes, </p>
<p>I saw my mind has fabricated beautiful lies. </p>
<p>But it wasn't his fault that I gave into temptation, </p>
<p>I was very young when I started loving hallucinations. </p>
<p>I was beaten and bruised as the demon ruined my muse, </p>
<p>I still felt heaven in the morning dues. </p>
<p>The view made my heart swoon, </p>
<p>Don't ask how I knew it even when I was trapped in a room. </p>
<p>So, I learned how to accept temptation </p>
<p>Because that is what kept me alive, </p>
<p>My hallucinations.</p>
