Go On Wake Me Up!!

Grab my tinted spectacles
Cut its maudlin tentacles

Force all musings to ebb
Their icky sticky cobweb

Stop me from chopping nose
To spite face with reality dose

Still hands flailing at windmills
force out of cocoon, get chills

Silly clown  that I am
Wishing for honey n jam

Wanting head buried in sand
Hoping for utopian homeland

Life is never a cakewalk
Sift through its double talk

Stop dreams of this dreamer
Visualizing only life brighter

Give instead a taste of vinegar
Life is mix of bitters and sugar

Reality stark swabbed and hosed
Clearly in view delusions exposed

A realist sober and stern is born
The poet lies gasping all forlorn!!

The dreamer can know no truth,
 not even about his dream,
 except by awaking out of it.
An artist is a dreamer consenting
 to dream of the actual world.
George Santayana American, Philosopher

 

The one person who has more illusions than the dreamer is the man of action.
Oscar Wilde 1856-1900, British Author, Wit

 

I am a dreamer. Seriously, I’m living on another planet.
Eva Green French, Actress
