Where am I?

Every night I知 awakened
In a place so strange.
The reality is similar
But still not the same.
People, places, and faces rearranged.

Sometimes I see life through
A deranged persons eyes.
No one knows I知 there.
It痴 as if I知 disguised.

Sometimes I watch from above.
I seem to float or fly.
Sometimes I cry,
And cant figure out why.

I know these worlds
Are not of my mind.
They exist in a different
Space place and time.

Usually these worlds
Are filled with strange creatures.
Sometimes the people
Have distinctly odd features.

I often wonder what is the name  
Of the planet I知 on,
Or the galaxy I知 in.

Pleasure is intensified
Pain is repressed.
Sometimes our evolution is heightened,
And more often regressed.

Someday the intricacies of our soul
Will be believed.
But right now as a whole
We are quite naive.

When we dream of our own world
Instead of one altogether new.
We have an experience
Which we call deja vu.

Sometimes we are not quite
ourselves it may seem.
Maybe we are suffering
From someone else痴 dream.

No matter how horrifying
Or how serene.
I am grateful for the experiences
I have when I dream.

This was a nice poem, often I wonder where am I?, also. Are our dreams real, what about the things that we see when our eyes closed, is it real!!!

LOL PFF. and Your welcome My dreams are your dreams.

Some people might think I am a little crazy Mystery but yes I do think our dreams are real. If the Universe is infinate than I think the possibilities are also. And yes I also think visions are real. We are so young  and we have much to learn. I think if we can forget what certain parties have been feeding us for years we will be off to a good start. We have to open our minds and stop beliveing everything we are told. I am struggleing with changing my thought processes every day. don't think I am just self rightously preaching over here.

Thanks for the replys
and forgive my spelling It is horrid
