My Dreams Drown Me

I dream at night, as we all do

I'm at a loss of all control of my mind, lost in my dream.

The darkness is suffocating as it engulfs me entirely,

Physically, emotionally, mentally.

I am stuck in this dream that I have fallen in,

Trapped in this fantasy, dark sickening fantasy.

An escape; it’s what I want, what I need.

The sun shines through my window and slowly,

The room focuses.

My mind is still trapped, but my body roams freely.
