When Dreams Fade Away


When Dreams Fade Away

When dreams fade away
I can no longer make you stay
I retreat to the cavernous room
There I relinquish my dreams
You do not exist
My imagination created you
A dream within a dream
Dreams made you real
In the shadow of this room
Crumpled remnants of my dreams
Dreams that never were
Fabrication of needs or wants
Taking away the reality of life
To forget for a moment
Dreams where you exist
Catching my attention from the now
Holding me prisoner to the dream
Until the bubble evaporates
In nothingness
To dream
Manifesting a dream
The moment is lived
Life in the now
You do exist
Though I could not see
For the dream blinded me
