Fictional lives

You know how in the movies people are always going to a cafe or a restaurant and eating and drinking? They’re always going for a run, going to the gym, browsing for books at a store and shopping at their outdoor markets down the block. I want that. I crave that. I’ll sit in the local Burger King for half an hour just to feel “real”. I’ll clutch my styrofoam coffee cup from the local coffee shop, feeling the heat emanating from it. Wishing this moment could last forever. That I could feel real forever.
