Paper Boat

Subtle shift in flow

Perceptions altered in state

Body calmly rests

Conscious Subconscious

Vivid lucid dreams

Aware of unawareness

Bring light to shadows

Take control of your vision

The mind director

Sticky Label

Note to self -
Who do you think you are?
What makes you tick?
Why so glib with your remarks?...

Do you see what I see?
Are you connected to my senses?
Or do you live in a separate dimension?

Deranged and estranged entanglement.
If you are me then what am I?

I glare bewilderingly into my reflection,
and ask, who's this guy?

Seeing The Feeling

They come and they go

Like memories made of sand

Like dust in the wind

Waiting Room

Am I dreaming that I'm awake?
A linear narrative that could be our mistake?

Dreaming of limitations,
Impossible lies and permutations

Invented physics,
Preposterous statistics

A conjured reality,
Living a life of triviality

Mental abnormality
An immortal deluding it has mortality?

Is this all just a massive trip?
A nurological momentary blip?

Has my sanity just given me the slip?!

Nourish & Grow

Replayed nightmares haunt the psyche
Blinded by sorrow and pain

Memories stained with hurt's wounds

on top of
one another

A foundation that holds heavy weight

Unearth the dark seeds and bring them
into the light

Their fruits will taste less bitter
