Life is but a Dream

Oddly enough, my dreams are too real

And I keep on seeing things only my mind knows.

The people I recognize and the emotions I feel

run off to a place where my memories go.

As my eyes close, I recount my day.

I think about what I could’ve changed

and I start to drift to a place far away:

to a familiar place that still feels strange.

Lost in a flood of overwhelming thoughts,

I fight a battle within my own head.

I kill off my demons to connect the dots

all before I get to leave my bed.
