Dream State

(©AiKei2017)


Enter the rabbit hole

Get me into the mood

Put on Joy Division

Listen to it in loop

_

Anxiety bubbles in

Like ants crawling inside

Fingers are chewed up

Sit or stand? Can’t decide

_

Staring at the blank wall

I put on my VR goggles

Escape from reality’s decay

World is out, as I boggle

_

Derealisation sinks in,

Frightening haze blows in my face

My life is like a movie

That I watch, but never play

_

No steps of salvation to pursue

No gods left to hollow to

I am groundless, shelter-free

I have nothing to hold onto

_

Ever since you came and left

I live in a constant dream state

In there, you are mine all the time

Don’t want this trance to terminate.

_

Self partitioned, life goes on.

Heart and mind live in another dimension

While Body showcases an empty citizen’s pretension

Life is a dream, when reality stinks!
