"I fell in love the way you fall asleep; slowly, and then all at once."
John Green


Sleep deprived
But still in a dream.
The nightmare awaits
Lingering for me.

The forest is alert
And so am I.
Gazing up at the sky
Waiting for my time.

Always in solitude
But it never shows.
I’m caged in the dream
That never lets go.

Seeking to evade fatigue
Or waiting for it to rest.
Don’t know what I want;
Dreams only live to infest.

Still in a dream state,
Gasping for light.

I can feel the tension,
Like wildfire.
But who lights it on me-
Myself
Or something else?

Life can feel like a dream within a dream

Isaac Asimov - "Intelligence is an accident of evolution, and not necessarily an advantage.”

Very clever; the concept and writting of it can be confusing, but it is well written and an intriguing poem :)
