My Life

Who knows
Maybe I’m someone else
Me
Is a character in a reality video game
A dream person
Made to fit an anonymous gamer’s idea
Of a favorite game avatar
Bending to their will
As an extension of the mouse
 .
Maybe I’m not smart at all
Maybe “I’m” really a shut-in
Someone who plays computer games
Day and night
When I sleep
The gamer awakens
From their fake reality
My dreams
Are their life
 .
And what an odd life it must be
Do they pay taxes
If so
How
If they are always flitting in and out
Of that weird place I call dreamland
Do they have rules there
Or are rules in that world
What magic is in this world
 .
A made up children’s story
“Come, let’s listen to the tale of The Three School Children
They’ll say
“They had lots of rules, where you couldn’t ______”
 .
Children play games
Where the heroine would break rules
And the others would be law keepers
Dragons to us
 .
Oh what if
I’m not really me
But someone else
Stuck in a computer
With only
An artificial life
That really isn’t mine
But the life a gamer created
To amuse his (or her)self
