A Dream Within a Dream

A Dream within a Dream (Revised from Edgar Allen Poe’s original) A though so stunning Haunting, isn’t it? An epiphany so bright, that you can envision it Is this real? Like something I can feel, or fake A false truth that’s hard to take For granted So, I grant a wish Not to live forever, but to dream forever And never wake up A beautiful mind so compelling That it’s kinda messed up For a normal brain capacity to handle An overload of material So rich it’s sick It’s like my life, lived all over again But different I sense what’s in store I know so much more Truth sets me free, so I live dangerously And carefree, because it’s real to me A dream that I think I’ll wake up from sleep But, it keeps repeating over and over again Until I can’t comprehend Real from unreal But I still maintain sanity This is my unconscious reality Uncensored penmanship is how I survive In a world that’s technically consuming Eating me alive So I dig up ancient poems of poetry From the archives and revise A masterpiece From great minds before me But I’ll one day be the greatest it seems That it’s just a dream within a dream
