Dream Within A Dream


My dreams are being controlled at the expense of consciousness
Systematically organized, the communism of my heads nest.

I'm petrified to fall asleep because I'm unprepared for the encounter
One more of a bother than in real life when I encount-her

And her

Questioning your choices to the point where I invent vocabulary
Trying to make sense of nonsense like you being mad at me

For not affording you attention? Something you're used to
You want someone different but then different doesn't suit you

When it slaps you in your face, altercat-ing with your ego
In the same way this text aggravates linguistic principles.

Bumping into you in fictitious venues is beginning to exhaust me
Like the coffee shops and libraries when I have no desire to read

Transported to euphoria where we become a team
And the smile uncertain to most becomes exactly as it seems
Because I begin to reflect the light within me that beams
Until my eyes awake and see you were a dream within a dream

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
