  • I am a lucid dreamer discovering reality.

    I am living in a fool's paradise...sleeping with my eyes open.
    My dreams are keeping me alive.
    What am I but an illusion floating, along with you and them, in this make believe world of reality.
    There is something beneath it all...cannot quite put my finger on it.
    Its out of my reach.
    What is its shape? What is it made of? Where does it start and end? Cant get it right, cant understand it at the moment.
    It is boiling, heating up and the steam is fogging my eyes. When it cools down everything will be clear.
    Breathe... gently...inhale...exhale...focus with your eyes closed and the answers will come to you.
    I am adrift in the middle of the ocean,and there is a tear in the sail. It will heal on its own.
    And as time passes by I build an island for myself. I take a stroll down the sparkling sandy beach and think of the time of confusion and a smile touches my lips gently.
    I bend down by the pond and scoop some water up in my hands seeps through my fingers and goes back to where it came from. No matter how much I try I cant hold on to it. So I take off my shoes,my clothes, my past and dive in.
    No need to take a handful when you have the choice to become one with it. I am swept away into the depths and I awaken.
    I cry.
