I thought I was awake
Shake me
This can’t be real
I must be sleeping
I close my eyes
It must be a dream
My life flashes right in front of me
What went wrong
The dark eyes in my dreams
What does it mean
They see right through me
The lies
The dark thoughts
How do they know
I open my eyes
I stand stunned
The nightmare
Is… Real
How could I have lied to myself
Maybe I am crazy
The dark eyes are not real
This can not be
Was I always this way
So sad
So negative
I don’t believe my eyes
But why would they deceive me
Once again my eyes shut
To block out the Truth
Of those dark eyes staring back at me
For all this time those dark eyes were the Truth
I wanted to be a dream
And could never face
In reality, only my dreams
