Here and Now

Fri, 06/13/2014 - 11:13 -- ryannk

I dream constantly and consistently

During long silences and pauses

And right before I fall asleep

The beginning is sweet and pulls me in

My eyelids get heavier

And I am dragged deeper

As a conflicts emerges

A battle I must face against my fears

My heart beats faster, my eyes begin to tear

As I realize it's not a dream but a memory

The fear is real but misplaced in time.

I breathe deeply and remind myself

I'm in the here and now

Not the there and then.
