Interest can’t settle in. the world we live in is dull and Lifeless.

Walk around and see, the world’s lost its colors.

To me, it’s now just a boring and silent black & white movie.


Music, Writing, Drawing, writing out my mind’s unspeakable thoughts,

Singing, dreaming of colorful swirls floating in the air of

The magical world filled with the unknown, the new and different.

Now that’s what living the dream is.

How fun would that be. To wake up in a world,

Impossible but all too real.

Grown ups tell us to wake up and get real.


Quiet! I’m wide awake! But still dreaming.


They tell us to wake up then, keep our dreams alive. Tch.

People sure can’t make up their minds.

Ah, my head’s too far into the clouds.

I doubt I’ll be able to wake up again.

I’m not awake at all.

And I don’t want to wake up anymore. For this world’s shown its rotten side.

Whichever kind of dream consumes me,

be it light, fluffy and heart warming, or Dark, heavy and Paralyzing.


Don’t wake me up.

Can you even do so? Will you try to pry me out?

Look at this uninteresting, bleak and scary reality I see first.

Come get me. Into my world.

Careful though. You might drown in my trapping dreams...

And end up never waking up.
