Dreaming will be the death of me
though its fun to dream, for awhile;
they'll let you live your deepest desires
and give you a temporary smile.
I no longer fear bad dreams,
now that I know they cause no harm.
when you wake, all you feel is happiness,
wrapped in blankets to keep you calm.
A dream rips your soul apart,
tears emotions to shreds.
realizing the happiness was only a dream
though the memories fill your head.
Reality stabs through your heart
and you know it could never be true;
your subconscious playing a funny trick,
showing all that you want to you.
A dream crueler than a nightmare
visits me every night.
Happier than I've ever been
I can feel my heart take flight
Everything I could want is there,
holding me in its embrace.
I look up from the warmth and finally see
his beautiful, smiling face.
Just like that its snatched away
like a feather lost In the breeze;
I should have known, the person he loves
could never really be me.
