I Dream

I toss, I turn,
I bury myself
In the reminiscences
Of my past.

I lay still, waiting,
To be swept away
Into the enormity of a reverie.

My ideal world,
A world of fancy,
Fancy, fantasy entwined,
I zip my eyes tight.

Whoa! In the trance, 
I am caressed, by 
the lightness, the buoyancy,
My soul beams.

I let myself free,
No inhibitions whatsoever.

.I live, I rejoice,
I be cheerful, I breathe

in my dream.

I reach for the stars,
Such is,
The supremacy of Dreams.

Then, the dawn dons,
Bleak becomes the dream,
The trance wrecked.

I wake up, eyes wide open,
And, there I witness
staring at me,
My ghastly Present!
