The other side of the dream
lies another dream
lies another clean slate
that you need to start scribbling on –
According to my disoriented head
And according to my head high with hope
I am just in a bad mood.
The other side of dream
lies new sets of insecurities,
More shit to deal with.
What did you think, you’d get away so easily?
What the hell is wrong with you?
I think even happiness hurts sometimes
When I laugh
often my heart yearns for the solace in sorrow.
Crazy, isn’t it?
What the hell is wrong with me?
Most of us don’t even know how to live!
Why do they not train you before throwing you out to Earth?
Here, we are trying to decipher the meaning of life
through random Instagram posts
deemed inspirational according to current popular culture.
Hence, the training,
Hence, my point.
Anyway, the other side of dream
lies a new list of confusions
Why is this moron complaining again?
Can’t she just revere what she has?
I am not complaining!
I am just trying to get rid of some pathetic filters of my mood
I hate it when I am poetic like this
I hate it
I hate poems
Though those are mostly what I write
I hate the honesty it drips with
And I hate how people simply don’t get it
Not their fault though
Poetry is pathetic.
Here, I admit it.
The other side of the dream
lies the new kind of rage
New sets of blows to conscience
New sets of excuses
New kinds of cruel addictions
You thought you could get away so easily?
And get another cup of coffee;
The door just leads into another room
for you to find another door
to yet another room.
I guess the key is to not lose patience
(At least, that’s what the tweet said)
What do you even want from your life?
Or a quick nap?
Long naps, actually,
Very long indeed
But then you cross a threshold
And you enter into a series of nightmares
Not your position of particular liking,
But you are too lazy to wake up
And your brain is too desperate for you to do the very same.
So ultimately you give in,
Inherent surviving skills, I figure.
I am impressed
Maybe they will come handy
when I am being too harsh on life
Come on get me out of here,
Where the hell does it go when you need it the most?
Wake me up, will you?
It will watch me suffer.
Let me get some popcorn for you
Oh, you need coke too?
The other side of the dream;
Welcome to the infinity loop,
To the Hotel California rules
It will be easier to ignore, easier not to perceive
That once you check in, you kind of never leave.
The hotel is humongous;
Infinite rooms, infinite doors
You are lost now
Just like you were lost before.
So does it really make a difference?
On the other hand,
I heard the room service is great
And the food ain’t that bad
And despite being in the gigantic maze of rooms,
And what not,
You can still easily find the bar.
I mean, just saying.
