This is the dream (4)

by mudrhetoric

I thought things were going to be different than they were.
But things can never be otherwise than they are.
And they are this.
They are this.
The world is on fire.
And unbeknownst, I’m still slumbering.
Awake in the dream.
Dreaming in vivid motion.
This is real.
This isn’t.
I know this thing.
The thing that I know.
And this the dream.
