Not A Dream This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
   The pictures I visualize

Are so clear.

I see -- it seems -- a window.

On the other side

I see Joy, Laughter, and Happiness.

I want to reach in and be with them,

But the window is a barrier.



Then I turn and see Sadness

All alone.

He looks at me as though he sees through me.

I stand and do the same.

I feel very strange.

He doesn't belong with the rest.

I want to reach in, but the window is a barrier.



Everyone else has disappeared.

I am confused for I do not understand

What this dream means.

The picture is becoming a blur.

I wake to find that it wasn't all a dream.



I see Joy, Laughter, and Happiness are

No longer there.

Instead I find Sadness staring down next to me.

All because the window was a barrier.
