The Dream Within A Dream

I had a dream about you last night. Then I woke up and phoned you to tell you how I felt. Then I woke up again and realised it was just a dream within a dream.

I should have kept sleeping.

And how the dream seems to sometime overpower the importance of reality, and how you'd wish reality to be like the dream, or vice versa, and how you'd just throw everything away for just another moment of that blissful reverie...

I am trapped in the past, and looking to the future, but what I really want exists here and now, but for me only in the past.

This is a reminder to all that feels painful and wrong, and all that will feel blissful and good, some moment later, I hope.

Not that I deserve it. I only really hope it gets better, and I hope that hope is enough to get me through.

i love that picture. and i dreamed these dreams within dreams all the time. this is so frequent that i even think to myself in these dreams, "i'm only dreaming" but i get excited anyways. then i wake up and the excitement falls but i say to myself "i told you so."

and m. oliver tremblay, i hope things have gotten so much better:)

I wake up from these dreams crying usually, alone in the dark. I wish we could live in these dreams and never have to deal with reality. I miss you every second of every day and it seems as though I never cross your mind.
