One Life, Or Many?

I WAKE INTO A DREAM

Fast asleep I fall and dream.
Bright colors swirl, and time careens.
It twists, and speeds, and
Blurs the lines. Darkened
Highways intertwine.

I wake into a different dream.
I recognize your face, the scene.
You’ve changed, but I feel
I’m the same. We kiss.
I can’t recall your name.

I wake again into a life
I know is mine, but feels more
Like a stranger’s lie I’m
Trapped inside. This dream
Won’t end until I die.

I wake and wonder what comes now.
Which dream takes hold? Which me
Allows the waking? Which holds
Fast to sleep? How can I choose
Which dream to keep?
