Dream (Where You Try To Wake Up But Can't)

Eyes heavy
Slowly falling
Into a deep sleep
People scattered through my head
Family, friends, and unfamiliar faces
I want to leave out of this world
I try to wake up
My eyes won't open
Instead I'm put in a different setting
I panic
I scream for someone to wake me
But no one hears;
Only me, myself, and I
Breathe, be calm, patience is the key
Things will come eventually
