If You Know What I Mean

I had this crazy dream
It's the one that keeps you interested
If your me, you'll know what I mean
To ignore your self resisted

So deep in slumber I went
On this night of required sleep
It's the snooze we always dream of
Into dreams of abyss deep

Through pages of looming clouds
As they fluttered in dreamy breeze
Many words I could see in my reach
Like winter leaves, on crying trees

Enticing in dream like flow
My two eyes can't be everywhere
I'm like a Rabbit caught in dreams headlights
In slow motion action I stare

Scattered yesterdays are all around
When I grasp they crumble to dust
Past words in anagram free
My steel beams now reduced to rust

In drift I try to imagine
Day to day life without the soup
It's a sentence I Just can't comprehend
Once tall and proud, I'm painful in daily stoop
