Poem – Escaping Dreams

When I close my eyes

I dream

Of places I have never been

But yet they feel like old memories

I dream outside the laws of physics

Where anything is possible

Sometimes, even the worst of dreams

Are a welcomed change to my reality

For reality has limits

And keeps you from flying

So, when I close my eyes

I dream

And whatever dream that comes

Is better than when my eyes are open

For in a world of pandemics, violence, and hatred

I would rather take my chances

In my dreams
