In the mirage of a dream
I see kaleidoscopes of his face
that I now realize were caused by the tears he caused
from the moment I awoke.
There was nothing more devious
than the underhanded epitome of collaboration
between reality and dream.
My reality had succumbed into the limitless dream of
flying into the arms of a bird.
But that bird wasn't just a bird. It was a nightingale singing
in the form of a dragon, breathing fire full of melodies and poetry.
He was in control of my sleeping universe
and I had no desire to return.
Somehow being stuck into the burning pain of a fire
was better than wondering around the ice-cold sphere
they called Earth.
They blamed me for being in this state-of-mind.
Demanded me to find hope in this world
rather than sleep all day.
But what they don't know is that I have cracked the code of unreality.
I have mastered the secrets of the universe with my brain,
as I have the power, when I close my eyes, to enter into a limitless space of air,
and let myself drift off my cold body
and find my designated lover in the land of clouds.
