Getting Real : Tea for Two

random video play

I was playing movies in my mind
The movies were pictures
The pictures were dreams
The dreams were of you

Too busy to watch movies
Or write
Or watch anything for that matter

So I dream
When I get a chance to sleep
If I get a chance to sleep when I sleep
If I'm not too tired to sleep
If I'm not too tired to dream

You’re the film I rent most often
Though I stop it halfway through
And always return it late
Without being kind and rewinding it
Like I should
Like every good citizen should, really.

Though, would they still be considered good citizens if you saw the tape?

Just a thought...
When I can`t sleep I put on Slipknot real loud for like 20 minutes.
It works like a charm, zzzzzz...

Tea, if you are Ex WS, you have a very good reason for being sleepless at night!
You have our sympathy and I for one will share a few of my sheep with you so you will have more to count when you get bored of trains!

Nah. No sheep. Or sympathy for me. Thanx though. Everyone's gone through his or her own private hell. It would be futile to compare scars. All I've ever wanted was an interesting life. And, hmmm... so far so good.

Life's not about getting from there to here as much as it is about getting from here to there.(reply to this comment

your poem sparked a question I had on dreaming.....Last night I woke up because my dream was sooooo boring. it just went over and over and over the same it was rewinding but not something I wished to be rewound.

Odd. The same happened to me the other night. And I knew then that it was time for self re-indexing! The postmodern dream isn’t so much an escape as it is an escape sequence.

Have we reached the ceiling of human sub-consciousness?

Or are we just drinking too much coffee?

I think it suggests that you're a very boring person. Just kidding, seriously though, maybe you're subconsciousness is fed up with the boredom in your life and is trying to jar you into doing something about it.(reply to this comment

They say that the way you are when you do sports or when you drive is the 'real' you-- shows your 'true' character. I think the same principle can be applied to the human subconscious as well.

But what? Does this then mean that you or I are boring in real-time? Possibly yes. Probably not. But then again, I don’t know you… I hardly even know myself. Still. I’d like to think that the fact boring dreams wake up us counts for something. Whatever that is. Whatever that means.

Apropos of nothing, tea, as you are ex WS why don't you tell us more about it...the dirty inner workings and such. There should be a section for that, don't you think?(reply to this comment

Maybe I'll set up a WS section or something sometime. In the meantime, feel free to ask any questions you have and I'll tell you what I know.(reply to this comment
