Don’t wake me up from the dreams of me
Floating in the clouds
Made of soft sheep.
Don’t wake me up from the dreams
Where I submerge into a pool
And begin to swim like a mermaid.
There is a kingdom in the Mariana Trench
Where I reside in my dreams;
Similar to Atlantis,
Hidden away from the real world,
Where there is nothing dreamy,
But seems to be filled with
Too much frustration and grief.
Let me escape into my art.
Let me provide an escape for others
Who are struggling for a better, easier life.
I know life is a dichotomy of good and bad,
Positive and negative,
Yin and yang.
But so far, all that I’ve seen is
Dark, black, and cold.
So don’t wake me up from my dreams
Where everything is light and carefree.
