Wide Awake I Dream

The crickets sing

Lightening bugs dance

The city of 4 million sleeps


Wide awake I dream


Paths crossed like electricity

Subtle flashes remind each day

Possibilities are only imaginary


Wide awake I dream


Near miss here

Near miss there

No simultaneous experience shared


Wide awake I dream


There is my dream

Here is my reality

Endeavor the two combine


Wide awake I dream


My existence known

My adoration confessed

Doubt prevents a bridge to hope 


Wide awake I dream


Unbelievable beauty

Unattainable authenticity

Undesirable feelings reflected


Wide awake I dream


Connection impossible

Life on overload

Outstretched hands fall short


Wide awake I dream


An alarm sounds

The quick body-jerk

Asleep, conscious, unknown


Wide awake I dream

Deep in sleep there is only certitude
