we can't escape

We can’t escape our dreams.

They come when we sleep and are defenseless.

Sometimes specific and sometimes twisted. Sometimes scary and other times, lovely.

We can’t escape our dreams.

They are the truth of our hearts, our minds frightened to speak,

Memories long forgotten, scars that run deep.

We can’t escape our dreams.

Reality that lives in our souls, safely tucked away in the light of day, 

Take center stage when our guard is down, to dance upon the psyche. 

We can’t escape our dreams.

Friend or foe, we never suspect, waiting to know what we are dealt. 

Vivid, colorful, black and white and gray, 

Tangible, visceral, well rehearsed and played. 

We can’t escape our dreams.

Never false, never misleading, 

A version of truth in our reality. 

We can’t escape our drams.  

Faces seen, touches felt, words spoken, meanings know.

When eyes open it was but a vision.

We can’t escape our dreams.
