Security

 

All I ever wanted to feel 

was safe

 

So I attached myself to things 

Greater than myself 

 

And I failed as dreams 

Kept me awake

 

I started living my life twice

Once for me and then for my fears

 

I thought I was being generous

With myself and my time 

 

And that feeling of feeling safe

Slipped away

 

Leaving me  to face

My dreams alone

Thanks, Guys. I'm just the unfaithful reporter to the little dude in my head. B

Dreams are for sharing.

Sometimes our defences are so complete, so impenetrable that they ensure our total security and insecurity and most assuredly obscurity

I thoroughly enjoyed this Robert
