A Warning

Go.
Leave this realm
of dreams and wishes.
There is nothing to be gained
and everything to be lost.
If you stay
you will lose yourself
and become nothing but a subconscious memory,
existing only in sleep,
never in reality.
And I warn you now,
behind this fa├žade
of pleasant things,
there lies a darker essence.
In this realm of dreams
exists also the realm of nightmares.
I beg you.
Leave this realm.
Do not dwell.
But I must remain.
I am the keeper of this place
of fantasies and nightmares.
My final words of advice:
Become not the dream
but stay the dreamer.
