Deja Vu

As these wretched eyes close
To dream again
I shudder…
For I am awake
And aware
Of the things that are happening
The metamorphosis
Of thyself…

I dream
A different dream
A nightmare
Clashing with reality

Swaying, swirling
Going round and round
Can’t stop
Wake me up!

My hand reaches out
Behold!
I am drowning
A quicksand!
Reach for me
In time
Or in this dream
I’ll dwell
For eternity…


Awakening

You were the Romeo in my endless dreams
Magnificence and gallantry alike
Your ethereal charms and dazzling smile
Drown me, bind me to your vicious, lurid embrace

Aye, my love, you vowed to be my knight
You professed to be in a shining armor
Your jeweled sword I held dearly against my breast
My vigilante, my shield
Now is thrust upon my heart
I ache, I bleed, I cry
But alas, my ravaged heart!
I saw you smile again
That devious smile
Through blinded eyes
I saw you again and again.

You refused to liberate me
Ah, you selfish prince!
You challenged my forbearance
I now crave no love
from you
as I compel myself to rouse from deep slumber
I find my eyes wide open
And I dream no more…
