My nightmares consist of smiling faces
Of children's laughter and surreal places
Of parties, of friendship and joyous occasion
Of beautiful song and jubilation
They always pertain to the highest good
To always being understood
They always have my dearest, you see
They have all this but have not me

These visions persist unrelenting
My reality they're circumventing
Their response to me; distant, aloof
As if I needed further proof
That I reside in another place
Another time, another space
For these painful dreams are at times
The only peace that I can find

Yet a smile emerges in response
As I train myself; 'this is what I want'
For pain is only a means to an end
And pain I have chosen as my only friend
An apparition to this domain
A being who's will cannot be tamed
For if a dream is all I see
Then dream I shall...
...the nightmare is me


Unorthodox maybe, but I grow on you.

ďAs to the roaming of sages,
They move in utter emptiness,
Let their minds meander in the great nothingness;
They run beyond convention
And go through where there is no gateway.
They listen to the soundless
And look at the formless,
They are not constrained by society
And not bound to its customs."

~ Lao-Tzu

That was wonderfully done!

Work like money doesn't matter, love like you've never been hurt, dance like nobody's watching...
