Actually, they're the same length.

Explanation

Yes, they really are exactly the same length. We expect pictures to represent objects which are square or made up of right angles. In this optical illusion, the eye computes the distance as though both boxes were square, which would support the conclusion that the one line is shorter since its box is only half the size of the other.
