Myth {μύθος}

A person having only an imaginary or unverifiable existence.
A story that is impossible to perform in reality, that only exists in imagination.
A false belief.
When you confuse your reality with your myth, you start to wonder where will that lead you
and if you dare to face the consequences.
In the end, you always have to choose.
A look, a crossroad, a reflection, a layered bed, a decision to ignore the truth, built my own
fictitious reality miles away from home.
