This morning I found my world is not so surreal as the dream I had the night before
It's a plain and listless place, men and women live here and I live here
But sometimes I wish I didn't
Cope and strive, cope and stive; we do this and I do this
I open a door and step into a dream and I live there when I do not live here
It is beautiful even though I am alone and I do not care that anyone should see
Someday I will share it with the men and women from the place I live
There are pages written in a book about me here in a language no one can read aloud
I'm an anonymous character with many talents and loves
There is a drama in motion
It is beautiful, it is dark and it is sad and the drama is loved
And I am apart of it
The audience cheers but there is none
The script has no end so they continue to listen even when I close the door on it all and I go back to being real
I've been gone so long and what has changed?
Nothing has changed, it's a plain and listless place

You packed this bad boy with a lot of moody, dark emotion and I'm so depressed now I'm about to start looking for a stout length of rope. ;(

I'd try to avoid using the same word twice in close proximity. It breaks the spell your casting. But otherwise, it was all good.

The message is one that I think everyone has gone through. It is down to earth yet all in the mind, keep it up!

very nice work
i think the repetition helps to show the monotony of waking life. this is a really good piece of poetry. keep it up.

This poem makes me think of a fantasy I dream about too, being somewhere else besides my own life or living another life. This poem has a lot of detail and makes the reader easily relate to it.
