I'm grateful for my avatar
Functioning well, the odd scar
Often bored of my own skin
I visit worlds waiting within
Physical demands eventually disrupt
Noisy distractions persist, interrupt
When night falls they tend to refrain
Hours may pass, I still remain
Inside transcendental places
Meeting new n' familiar faces
My senses heightened
Existence enlivened
An economical holiday
Safe and far away
From all life's worries
And its incessant flurries
Experiencing new chapters
That my brain captures
Just like "actual" memories
Stored in my treasuries
I'm starting to realise
That each sunrise
Lights a world that I can
Explore as a man
Just as I do with glee
In Dreamland so free
The difference being
I'm no longer dreaming
Choices endure
So I like to ensure
My future gains
By this choice which remains
What choice do I mean?
The ever moving scene
The Present as they call it
You get to draw it
Your body the pencil
With so much potential
Constantly writing
Is the story exciting?
It's hard to know
But I'm keen to touch snow
Which I've done in Dreamland.
Just not in Queensland.
Nor any physical place.
I want to go to space.

do you simply enjoy travelling to dreamland,
or is it that living in reality feels too much like a nightmare?
Raven Mc Chim May 2020
A wonderful world
With all good and bad
There is a place in the corner of the world
Where the flowers blossom every second
Water falls from the sky
Which is always sparkly even you die
There lives an animal kingdom
Where everyone has wisdom
Their king was a wise lion
Humans don't exist there
But tourists does
That is a land of wishes
Where every wish of yours is fulfilled
This is the place where you find everything you deserve
For all this you have to lose what you love the most
just fantasy came that came up in my mind
Asominate Jan 2020
A hue of three
We princes stand
A half, a child, and one a man

The prince of blue
Collected, calm and cold
Died to the red hue
So've we've been told

The citrian prince
Mind; heart of child
Pure innocence
Energies wild

Red prince, of passion and love
To self his own
A brethren fell at his shove
Thus becoming grown
The three known princes of the Isle of Calm Calamities
Asominate Jan 2020
The Land of Calm Calamities
Here now it lies an island
Call out its name, if you do same
It'll rise from the horizon

Upon a hill
The palace still
Watches upon its city

Three harpies sings
Blue prince on string
Left behind him royalty
A land from my dreams, complete with history
Jay M Nov 2019
Shining brightly in the night
In the corners of our minds
Dancing with the dead
Wherever that may be
If there at all
But still you do
Smiling down from the heavens
Passing on your good wisdom
Then walking back among the living
Just for two days
One just for you
The other for the rest
But still you do roam
Lingering to say
Your greetings and farewells
Then ascending
Back to that magical place

do i want to even dream?
fall into that loop of
                               you standing there
                               me breathless again
                               admitting all my mistakes
                               admitting maybe you're irreplaceable
but i wake up every time
taking a deep breath
catching up to reality again
because its been a while since
                                           i've seen you
                                           heard from you
                                           even thought about you
you make it so easy to fall in love
you make it so easy for me to hate you
do i even want to dream?
fall into a lucid cycle of
                                     thinking i was good without you
                                     kissing you hard
                                     letting your hands fall where they shouldn't
                                     regretting and breaking glass
but focus
wake up again
the sun rises and i'm back
knowing i'm fully in love
with everything i hate about you
i dream
i sleep
i wake up without you
