Time To Dream... - Poem by DEEP DARK SOUL POET

Time to dream in my world of dreams
Where everything is not what it seems
Shadows consume all the light
Around the corner is another fright

Pools of darkness licking at my legs
Swimming in the drowning dregs
Sucked under to where I don't belong
Mystery music singing an unknown song

Nothing around void emptiness is all I see
Strangely enough it's where I want to be
I can't fall or trip and hurt my knee
There is nothing here but only me...

My mind and my thoughts are here all alone
I hear a ringing in my ears but it's not a phone
I can't tell which is up or which is down
I feel nothing near me for there is nothing around

Tempted to find some more isn't there
I don't know how well I will fare
Is it time to wake and rise?
To a world full of hidden despise

I fear the worst and hang on some more
Holding back from stepping through the door
I know I must go back to what awaits
An empty house and dirty plates

I prefer the nothing in my world of empty
Compared to the ugly world of plenty
At least I know there's nothing to hide
As my world has more nothing inside

The real world has so much to bare
I only want to sit and stare
But the full world has so much within
And full of emptiness where do I begin?

One is true to me and holds no lies
The other deceives with little inside
I think I'll stay for a little longer
Until I think I'm a little stronger

So in my dream I live for a while
And although sad I glint a smile
For nothing in it's purest form
Is better than deceit being born...
