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 griefs 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.

The quickest way for me to learn something new is to first understand why I'd like to learn it.

Wide awake now!
Right on James...nothing is more frustrating than to have a vivid, all involving dream, and wake up...knowing this has ocurred, but you don't remember a word of it...except that it was so real!

I wonder if we had the same dream???

or having the same dream now ...
The point is, how awake are we, day to day? ...
... butterflies dreaming that we're people ...

Poeteye's dreaming
Yeah, I really like this free flow of thought prose style of yours...often as a child I would wonder if my dreams were the true reality and that my waking life was the illusion....much like what the Australian Aborigines believe, only I didn't know it then. Yes, what is true reality, certainly not the physical.
