You cannot have both

Delusional by choice
Reality suffocates dreams
Sleep is only nightmares

Burned by the rising sun
Swallowed by the mouth of darkness
One eye open, the other closed

Never at total peace
Restless at all hours
Turns between life and death

Laughter and tears
Love and mourn
The other eye closes

    I can sense great turmoil within. Very unsettling to read. Great poetry, though I hope you are ok and this is part imagination. Love, Shar

    Teresa that is some heavy duty poetry, I can feel a lot of pain and confusion coming from these words. I hope these are just words but we all have those dark days just don't let them get you down, Blessings your way, Ron
