Just A Thought.


As you open your eyes, ever felt something’s not right?

as if affected by dreams, random thoughts in the night?

as if the goalposts moved without you knowing why

as if hearing a different drummer, life’s passing you by


As your day progresses,  does this feeling grow stronger ?

as if you’re not quite sure of yourself any longer

as if your brain is throwing stumbling blocks in the way

as if you’re not in control, tell me, am I describing your day?


many times I’ve wondered about the dream-like state

you’re dreaming, you think, then suddenly wide awake

You look around, collect your thoughts, you prepare for your day

could this reality be the dream, or the dream be reality in any way?

  1. In The Reality of a Dream? Well Don’t You Be Dreaming of Pancake Eating Zombies or Skeleton’s Bones As Breakfast Will Be Exceedingly Boring.

    The Essence of a Dream and The In Depth Realities? i know. Perhaps NOT Eating Cheese of an Evening Will Stop Those Nightmares, or Maybe It’s A Dream of Johnny Depp The Wicked, Naught and Sexy Pirate That Is Grabbing Your.

    No I Mean Grabbing Your Attention?

  4. A good poem and quite true – sometimes when my alarm goes off it gets incorporated into the dream which is a pain if I have to get up!!!

    Have a great weekend my friend!!!

    Love and hugs!



  5. Yes sometime i feel that way
    Hope your having a good weekend

  6. An interesting writing that expresses what I think is an observation that we all find at sometime in our life , for me this seems to occur more so as we get older , when day dreams include past experiences intermingled with hopes and dreams both gained and lost as well as daydreams bringing on emotions of love and hurt and pain and sadness , maybe daydreams are the bodies way of helping the mind to cope , enjoyed your writing very much so , thank you


  7. Lovely Pen my dreams are so vivid its scary, I do wonder this at times. Thank you Sheila


  8. Hi Lady P,
    This is a beautiful poem. You have a real gift for being able to express yourself exquisitely in rhyme. Since taking on part time study and probably studying too long into the early hours of the morning I wake up feeling that way all too often I think. I’m hoping it’s a temporary condition and also that it’s worth it 🙂

    Thank you for the compliment on the purple flowers, I think they’re beautiful as well. I saw them while going for a bit of a walk in the hills and unfortunately..I don’t know what they’re called. I’ll try to find out and..we’ll be able to call them something else besides…purple flowers.

    Lady P,
    I’m hoping you have a pretty good day!


  9. Lovely poem Lady P. I don’t know why but I didn’t get an email that you updated.
