The Edge of Reality

22 Jun

In the abyss of my mind I see

Two worlds colliding gracefully

A world of dreams and pastures new

A world of my life with dreams so few


Between the two is a crevice deep

It’s where I fall when I’m asleep

Which step to take I cannot see

As I stand on the edge of reality


I know the path that I must take

I will be right there when I awake

A dream world state is not for me

I’ll stay right here in reality

    That’s where I would rather be too. Well done–I really like this, Jeanie.

    Your last two lines are poignant and telling. The rhyme and cadence are nicely constructed as well.
