The Disappointing Dream Man

I come into existence With memories of you As I un-exist to become a time of rest I lapse to forget your warmth too I favour pleasant midnight With the sugar-sweet night scent I’m so unhappy I breathe uneasy So I search for a vent You’re my quest Immovable love that must be found Illusion of love is not enough By your unknown love I am bound I have not yet met you Because you exist in my dreams Immune to existence Or only mine it seems I require your presence As an escape from reality You’re my only vent Only you can free me So to discover you one more time I need to seize un-existence I need to inhale sweet night ecstasy And forget your previous resistance It’s hard to sleep When all I think of is love So the doorbell awakes me With the sound of a dove I close my eyes And count to seven Un-imaginable belief I’m going to heaven I’m walking with the King But unsure of his arrival Disappointed, I asked him why he’d come Hoping for longer survival He thanked me for my prayers And told me not to be sad That I shouldn’t worry His love I always had My search for a distant dream was my end Even though I’d found love for which I’d begged I thought it would be in realities bend This ecstasy caused my unsatisfied death
