Reality is a Dream

There are moments
when my world shines brightly enough
that I doubt
that reality is not a dream,
destined to decay
upon the surrender of deep sleep
to an invasion of sunlight across my face.

But then
you smile at me,
and my heart beats loudly enough
to reassure me
that I am awake.

Thanks =) I never did take a look at yours, but hey, it's Winter Break, so I got all the time in the world. Be waiting for some contructive crit!

Very well written! I especially love the last few lines "and my heart beats loudly enough/to reassure me/ that I am awake".

I've been reading through your works for the past ten minutes, mind taking a look at mine? I'd love some criticism.
