The Language of My Dreams / Lynn White

I have such beautiful dreams.
They speak sweetly to me
inside my head. 

Inside my head
such sweet dreams
growing louder and harsher
as they struggle to be heard,
as they struggle to get to the outside
into the ragged, jagged
outside life
which passes for normality.

Such beautiful dreams.
Such perfect words.

Such a perfect life
lying inside my head.
I would like it to be
on the outside.
