Things had started normally. They had just been dreams, unusual yes, but aren't they all? Years apart I couldn’t put the pieces together. As they began to happen with a shorter time in between, from year to year, month to month, week to week, day to day...I began to see. By then though it was too late. The line separating reality and dream had already thinned and blurred. Who I was, did not match who I once was, nor the one I was to be. Stuck between the two worlds I tried...oh I tried to separate them, attempting to repair the line. Writing list of who I was to be so I would know what not to do (what to avoid). It hadn’t worked though. I couldn’t tell the difference between me and him. Him being what would (will) be the final result should I fail to divide the worlds. It wasn’t working! Why wouldn’t it work! Advice from the one who faced what I face did me nothing save lose just another bit of sanity. How could I look into the mirror to see if it is me if I don’t know who me is? As I lay in my bed (is it mine?) at night I cry. For what reason, I do not know. Was it my fear that should I sleep I might wake as someone (something) other than me, or that the line had disappeared altogether (would I even know!) Regardless I sleep with only the hope, that this was simply just a horrid dream within a dream. And that I will wake to find I am me and only me (the line firmly in place).
