A Warning

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.
