Poem - A Life as a wish





A life as a wish

I’m tired of my dreams
Both real and imagined
One permeates my day
Propelling
Compelling
Ceaseless voice.
The other
Eating away at my nights
The disappointments
And woes
Of my subconscious
Dissolving me up
From the inside
Out.

Maybe they can come true
So I hear
From those few who’ve made it
But the truth comes at a cost
And the toll is already high.




It is more than tiring
It is a whittling away of the senses
Blazing
Charring
Never satisfied.

I’m exhausted
And realise I’m running out of energy
And patience
And only wish
To be left alone
From these dreams
The internal
Eternal
Curse of the Dreamer.

Keep smiling,
Until then
