Into the REM

*Poem written for a poetry class freshman year of college '09

____________________

Waking up into a dream
Falling out of consciousness
Feeling exiled and crushed
Push, pulled and flushed
Head spinning in a wander
Thoughts woven by history
A parade of mystery
Lucid dreams in reality
Creating my own actuality
What is this grief?
Can I escape this mischief?
Can I find familiar massif?
Plucked from reality
Thrown in unreality
“Stop fighting” a voice throws
Towards the moonlight I gaze
“Allow thoughts to reign”
The moon has spoken to me,
This is no second handed dream
I may be lost but I’ll REM.
