Reality is the dream and the dream is reality

Written by: Chrissy Downing

It seems
Reality is the dream
And the dream is reality
Words cannot wash it clean
A simple dream
Please send it away
How it ruined a whole day
Is far beyond my concise knowledge 
I wake shivering in a cold sweat
Heart pounding
Mind racing 
I know it’s just a dream
I try and tell that to myself
But I feel the lines between the fake and the real blur
These nightmares are so daunting 
Always haunting me
Casting sleep out of my mind when I need it the most
My dreams seem so real
Maybe that’s because they hold too much truth
Things that are supposed to be left in the past
Surface
Find a home in my memory
Taking place of all thoughts
I’ve tried to hide from the dream
But it seems
Reality is the dream
And the dream is reality
Theres no escape from my mind
I am a prisoner for all of time
I am told many ways to rid myself of these terrors
Ive gone through all methods
Yet my subconscious seeks the truth 
And it wants me to know it
Can history repeat itself
Is what my mind tells me..
Is it true
My worst fears come to light
it seems
Reality is the dream
And the dream is reality
