Awake In A Dream
I don’t want to sleep.
I don’t want to be awake.
Is this a dream?
Is this reality?
Why do I linger at my desk?
Why do I stare at my blank screen?
Is it fear that holds me still?
Is it dread of dreams that drives me?
Who am I?
Where am I?
Is this where I belong?
Am I even part of this world?
These thoughts run through my mind,
Like the sound of thunder on the plains.
Do I really seek the answers?
Or am I avoiding the truth of me?
