PARADIGM

Document

Nocturnal hallucinations enthrall


my mind in slumbering delirium.


Evolving from nothing I can recall,


the circumstances of these visions come


to dominate all else that I may know


of real-life concerns and day-to-day trusts --


sometimes with unknown purpose, some just grow


from nightmarish grief or unfulfilled lusts.


 


Till waking, I don't even think to try


to see past what I have let overwhelm --


the dreams so real and involving that I


do not conceive a world outside their realm.


 


 


Once I am up, I know that these were dreams:


Now I’m awake, at least that’s how it seems.
