Lucid Sleep;
In my dreams, I feel my dreams fade away.
I wanted to be a writer, but now I work with the words of others.I wanted to be a painter, but now I doodle on the easels of others.I wanted to be a singer, but now I listen to the music of others.I wanted to be a traveller, but now I move in cars and buses.
In my dreams, I saw my future laid out before me.
I see myself, in a lovely home and family.I see myself, at a 9-to-5 with weekend OT.I see myself, driving through heavy traffic.I see myself, waking and working and sleeping and repeat.
In my dreams, I chase to try and keep something close.
I run and run, and it goes further and further away.I pant and wheeze, and it goes further and further away.I trip and stumble, and it goes further and further away.
And then I wake up.And I feel like I’m still asleep.

Lucid Sleep;

In my dreams, I feel my dreams fade away.

I wanted to be a writer, but now I work with the words of others.
I wanted to be a painter, but now I doodle on the easels of others.
I wanted to be a singer, but now I listen to the music of others.
I wanted to be a traveller, but now I move in cars and buses.

In my dreams, I saw my future laid out before me.

I see myself, in a lovely home and family.
I see myself, at a 9-to-5 with weekend OT.
I see myself, driving through heavy traffic.
I see myself, waking and working and sleeping and repeat.

In my dreams, I chase to try and keep something close.

I run and run, and it goes further and further away.
I pant and wheeze, and it goes further and further away.
I trip and stumble, and it goes further and further away.

And then I wake up.
And I feel like I’m still asleep.
