DELUSION

You lie down on the bed
and close your eyes
you swim across
the ocean of dreams
you are happy
you are at peace,

Next thing you know
when you wake up
you are not 22
anymore but 62
life has passed by you
all the dreams are now irrelevant
you can’t put your fingers
on the things that changed
or where the loved ones are gone,

The heart beats faster
you struggle to climb the stairs
the plaster falls off the wall
you stare out of the window
but the city is not yours anymore
and neither are you…
