Dream State

A Poem

My setting is blurry,

Someone is moving their mouth although no sound emits,

I just went from a school setting onto a hilltop looking over the world,

Do people ever realize they’re in their own dreams?

Familiar faces or of the unknown inhibit my mind moving their mouth uttering words I may understand,

Sources say dreams help you,

What does a movie theater turning into a funhouse and your whole family angrily walking out into nothing mean?

Why can’t I run?

Why am I naked sometimes?

Why do I wake up when the dream is just getting good?

I’ve always wondered if we’re taken into our fantasies and before waking up we’re brought back to our beds,


A way to act out unconscious desires in a safe place until becoming a danger upon a nightmare,


The best word anyone could ever say to me,

A way to rest our minds from stress,

Dreams tell a story,

A succession of images, ideas, emotions, and sensations,

A story,

Why, oh why, oh why do I forget the instant I wake up?!

Writing has been my passion. I love creating stories from fiction, poetry, fanfiction, and I even enjoy writing reviews about movies and plays. I would love to become a freelance writer and leave the world inspiring minds.
