Yesterday's Dreams

"All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream"
--Edgar Allan Poe

The thread was cut
Eyes shut
Falling into an illusion
Missed the rising of the sun
Sickness over take me, distortion turns into infrared
Thoughts tumbling in my head
Overwhelmed, tired, dry
The body is empty, hunger snatches a cry
Annoyance comes to visit
As time flies by with each minute
Sleep overtakes once more
Limbs stale and sore
Pills tumble down the throat
Death comes and gloats
Shaken hands begins to write
As the pen bleeds in fright
Camouflaged by inspiration
The ink spills crimson confusion
Sickness now tamed by medications control
The false smile plays its role
While the mind reflects
Yesterday’s dream begins to connect
Another page turns in my life
Another day with new strife’s
Another war fought
More happiness and peace sought
I am awake and alive
Somehow I managed to once again… survive

  We all have days like this. It's more a reflection of the society we live in than ourselves. It's hard to live a good life on this mad planet...
