Imagined Reality

Foreword: I wrote this poem while listening to Tchaikovsky's Sleeping Beauty Waltz. The lines were pretty much impromptu so please be considerate when it comes to the wordings. Thank you :) Once upon a dream, You thought it was all real But can't you see that it is In fact purely imagination. You try to hide it, Disagree and deny it But one cannot really stop you It's all up to what It is you believe or not You shut everyone out Stayed inside that dream Afraid for it to end Like a wonderful symphony That's bound to play its last note. You waltzed, allowed it to sink in Sooner or later you'll realize It was all just a dream But no, you kept dreaming Smiled to yourself You thought I was joking Or did you know what I meant? You started laughing Gave me that look You knew something I didn't I tried to comprehend But you wouldn't let me in What were you dreaming of? What's so great about that dream? What does the real world lack Compared to that transparent world? You seemed content Filled with peace and joy Then everything became a blur You tried to tell me something But couldn't make out of it Your words spluttered out like anagrams I listened once again But then I woke up.
