Not Awake

NOT AWAKE

I know
I’m not awake,
but I don’t believe
I’m dreaming.

This all feels
so real,
even as I watch
myself and wonder
why I do the things
I do,

Say the things
I say,

Believe the things….

I’m not awake.

I like this dream,
not dream, this life,
these colors,

And the characters
I play,
looking so like
you, like her,

Knowing you’re
all me,
dreaming,
not dreaming.

Not awake.
