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
