the dreamer

Written by: Babajide Ilebiyi

There is whirlpool in my head
A storm of unformed thoughts
A gallery of fleeting images
A staccato of blaring sounds

Arms outstretched I reach for a dream
Amidst a million divergent voices
Here’s my intelligence playing tricks on me
Damn the metaphors and speak plainly

Head in the clouds i reach for that dream
Till the calming of stormy thoughts 
When pictures of perfection light up my mind
And crystallized serenity is attained
