    Trapped in Lucid Dreams

    I stared into the old lady's black eye
    empty and dark, and touched by madness
    I spoke, almost chanting,
    "I want to wake up, I want to wake up..."

    There was laughter in that crazy eye.
    No window to any soul
    but a black hole into which I was falling,
    pulling me down into madness.

    I was getting lost in the darkness
    and talons of fear were reaching for my heart.
    She pulled away, as if to release me
    but I was still trapped within this nightmare.

    No knowledge I contained, no science or wisdom
    had anything to say nor help to give.
    How to awaken when you know you're dreaming
    is a lost art and I fear I'll never learn.

    (based on a real dream I had 2 nights ago, with this lady and her black horrible eye. I "knew" it was a dream, wanted to wake up so bad but didn't know how. I think it works as a metaphor for life too. I may expand further on this one, not sure it's done or developed how I want it because of that.)
