I keep waking up


as the light blazes

into my eyes

orange behind

these sleepy lids

and I stretch like

a little kid.

I had a dream

that my room

was a tent

and it was filling with water




I abandoned my home

swam to shore

and it was over

as I sat among

the Venus flytraps.

I had a dream

with all the wrong people

the ones that

I let

hold me back

the ones I allow

to make me feel like crap.

I had a dream


were different

and I wasn’t codependent


did not need

and love

did not need to be

pined for.

I had everything

I thought I wanted

and more.

No wonder

I keep waking up
