I should snuggle in between the pages of the dictionary and maybe then I’ll be seen as having meaning.
thousands of years dedicated to unlocking the secrets of the cosmos

they still find ways to swim in confinement
good thing dreams put them back in the waters they once knew

Competing for pleasurable sensations
Romanticism is the motivation
while trying to out live time’s cessation
Every step I climb puts me deeper in wonder.
There are others living out their dreams while I’m too busy dying in my nightmares.
