stay asleep

Some dreams may betray and deceive,

Promise you the world 

but leave you empty,

An illusion of freedom

but only chains of slavery.

What can you trust

when lies disguise themselves as truth?

When the thrill in your heart

becomes a lasting wound?

Why is fantasy the highest ideal

we can never achieve?

Why can’t fairytales

ever exist in reality?

Life loses its appeal

if we’re not allowed to dream.

My dreams are stubborn monsters

who refuse to stay asleep.
