I can’t tell the difference

between dreams and reality

for one steps into another

leaving a trace of itself.

I live in an alternate universe

beyond this world yet also

deeper than my subconscious,

a place in between.

The sounds of the tangible

invade the unknown

and vice versa causing

confusion and delusion.

I pace around with eyed closed

unable to leave this purgatory-

the cliff’s edge- where when I fall

I wake up and descend again.
