Idealism is a nightmare
hidden behind a dreamscape
buried within the unattainable.
Existing in a tainted reality
is but an exercise in futility
as moments pass unwilling
to bow down to ideas
contained within the dreamer
leaping into a future without fret.
Dreams are nightmares
crusted over wounds unseen
because they never existed.
I may be a skeptic; eyes open
to the unrelenting beating of life
yet I can’t help myself but to hope.
I’ve seen the things I’ve wished for
so many times now that reality
can’t possibly capture the imagery.
Existence is flawed perfection
where wishing ignorance is
more reasonable than accepting fate.
