#PoetryLovers: Dreaming.

You’re not dreaming,

When mother’s and daughter’s are crying over brother’s taken by another mother’s own,

No, you’re not dreaming,

When she calls your phone with a million lies on why she has to postpone,

Yes, he’s scheming,

Trying to make money to keep that pretty wrist gleaming,

What happened too good old work?

Thriving on the feeling of being different,

Having passion for something you feel is real instead of trying to conceal hidden talent,


One day the sky falls,

The walls around you crumble and you mumble,

What did I do before life took its tumble?

Before the human race damaged the world’s beauty and grace,

And there you are in a pile of dust,

With nothing but memories of lustful ways and the days you used to play silly games,

A waste of brains, waste of space,

Not living but existing in a twisted place called your mind,

That bridge between real life and what real life is to you,

Trust me, you’re not dreaming,

When you’re drunk alone leaning,

Wondering why nothing seems to be gleaming for you,

Search and you will find,

Remind yourself why you started dreaming in the first place.
