AwakePanicDreamCalm

Photons fell from your neck in a luminous fluorescent blur,
You woke up early only to find you've left for a while.
Those premonitions in your head will repeat, they will recur,
While all your brittle dreams lay on the floor, strangled in a pile. 

Every mirror smashed itself at the slightest reflection of your face,
The shards laughed a thousand times as you trembled like an echo.
Your conscience split itself in two, your memories have been replaced,
You watched your pupils duplicate, you watched the scleral glow.

Tentacles draped your dress like a defect Cinderella,
Your colouring ran crystalline synthetic blue.
You've divided your breath with a mirage forever,
Welcome yourself to the new you.
