In a land with boundless will
while I'm sleeping, silent and still.
My mind gets lost in false reality memory
recall things I wish could be,
In my sanctuary where I dream my fill.

In my sleep, my nightly rest
a wonderful state, my mind's best.
I journey to see loves of my past
Only here is where apology forecasts,
Only here is where my mind could last.

Here's the place I can be myself,
rightly live my life in fantasy itself.
Only sleep to escape the day,
Only in dreams do I let truth lay
In my sanctuary I will meet death herself.

In my dreams, I live a life to good to live,
A life so few could give.
And in my dreams I waste away,
Til' I'm old and bitter, and want to stay.
Only then the dreams I dreampt will take me away.

The most fantasical truth of all: There is no meaning to any of this.

Young Poets
I agree with Desvelado-it really is great to see someone as young as you writing poetry so eloquently. Keep it up; I can tell that writing is part of you.

Thank you
Thank you both for your comments, I am sorry I took so long to reply, I've been kinda busy.

Desvelado, When I wrote this, the line "false reality memory" was suppose to have memory on the next line, ("Memory recalls things I wish could be")
I consider death a part of nature, and from the term "mother nature" I take the female aspect.

More than just dreams!
Amazing the levels of existence we experience while sleeping. I once had a three part dream. It lasted,(obviously), three nights in a row. What began on the first night started the second and the second started the third. In my dream I had a life that I've never known before. I, along with someone that I knew but did not recognize in my dream, passed by this house that shocked me for some reason. I demanded that my friend stop the car and I just walked slowly up the sidewalk staring thinking to myself, "I've been here before." And that's it! Yea I'm a weirdo!

I truly believe, based on my own experiences, that dreams are FAR more meaningful than we humans have the ability to understand. I look for any info on how others view their dreams.

We are always more in our dreams than we are in reality...NOT!!! I believe that your " to your capable of. "Someone's" trying to make certain you remember that.

Really, really enjoyed this.

AND....I finally get to say to someone else....WELCOME TO LIT! YEAAAAAAAA!!!!
