The wind carries you and your thoughts

when you are awake,

while you hide inside your secrets

when you are asleep.


When you are asleep

a woman jumos out of your dreams,

a helpless woman as helpless as a soulless soul

and its hard to escape the torn feelings

of a soulless soul because you start to realize

that you cab'r help her so you leave her alone

to find her own answers and to find herself in

the wealthy man's pockets.


You can't look into that cryptic mirror

that has stolen your own eyes

without facing thw broken light

from the shattered sun.


You hear a forceful sound as it begin

to crawl inside your skull like the woman

that grabs the bottom of your leg

and drags you up and down the stairwell,

up and down continuously.


And when it finally stops you wake up

and become joyous again because it was

all a dream. 

But it wasn't just a dream,

you just pretend it was.
