Waking From a Dream


Waking from a dream.

Sit straight up,

consumed by darkness.

Even in the night,

the mind fights

to fit the pieces.

Why is it so strange

to be here

in this body?

Moments ago, alive.

All the sensation

without the physical.

Are we right here?

Or is this another

sensory simulation

we will wake up from?

Too much

to calculate

at this young an hour.

Smash back down

into quilted comfort,

mind lingering

on the possibility

of waking from a dream.
