dream's disillusionment
luvscost

Velvety murkiness engulfs the room,
 1
swallowing it in unsearchable shadows
 2
sprawled across the bed, sleepless eyes
 3
staring at fan blades chase one another
 4
cool sheets glide against restless legs
 5
wide awake and bathed in an icy sweat, pulse pounding
 6
washed over by a wave of emotion
 7
overwhelming yet elusive, unidentifiable
 8
slipping beneath the spectral surface of consciousness
 9
still too tangible to push away
 10
the hazy remembrance of reverie
 11
still fogging up thoughts
 12
with the convergence of its fluidity
 13
and grey incoherence
 14
struggling to wipe clean the slate of the mind  
 15
drowning in unfathomable depths and
 16
still smeared with a lack of clarity,
 17
dreary eyes dim and close once more
 18
to swim back out to the sea of dreams,
 19
away from the shoreline of lucidity
 20
flooded with a feeling of
 21
abstruse anonymity and acceptance
 22
of the absurdity of fear of the unknown
