Unreal

 

I dropped into a world of madness

I leapt on to a dream,

I let it worm right through me

But now I want to scream.

 

For dreams can turn to nightmares

When there’s nowhere to escape,

Reality comes crashing in

When I slam on that wretched brake.

 

It seems I’m left in twilight

Where I’m feeling kind of numb,

Be warned that this is waiting

If you let yourself succumb.

 

I’m back now in reality,

Too worn down to resist

I should have embraced the madness

For I’d never have been missed.

 

Dreams and nightmares still abound

But I confine them to the night,

I’ll paint on a smile to face the day

And keep my real self out of sight.
