sometimes we kill dreams

before we fall asleep

eyes wide open

mouth wide shot

sometimes we recall shattered dreams

when we were awake but asleep

with eyes to see but mind open

to accept every mind-tricking shot

now we are experts of lucid dreams

waiting for victims of our dreams

ourselves victims of our own dreams

whisper it loudly – we have just killed our dreams

even before we fell asleep

now we fear to fall asleep

even though we do not need sleep

our wakefulness is dreadful dreamful sleep.
