Prompt 196: A Fool's Paradise

Thanks to Leo of I Rhyme Without Reason for this week's prompt, a fool's paradise.  Here is his poem.

I am lost, forgotten in the world where I stay,
invisible, though I ain’t a million miles away;
No whispers behind my back, shouts more,
feel wanted at times, though mostly ignored.
After so many stabs, you’d think I’ve learned,
no good can come here when often spurned.
By optimism consumed, I’ve built on this lie,
that all friends are forever, even after we die.
Fool’s paradise, that’s where I always reside,
I cannot escape, cannot even say I have tried.
