Dreaming of Sleeping

A Poem

I am dreaming of sleeping

My head feels filled with helium

My knees feel I fear they will slip down

Slip off of me

Like pants without a belt

I am dreaming of sleeping

My body feels heavy, lost its equilibrium

My heart beats as though I had been running around

Running from sleep

From the exhaustion that is felt

I am dreaming of sleeping

My intellect is broadened by its own delirium

My thoughts get carried away unbound

Away they carry me

Away from the stupor that was dealt

I was dreaming of sleeping

I had begun to speak to the people of Elysium

Carrying on conversation with voices and musical sounds

Till I woke in bed

When my consciousness returned to where reality dwelt
