(There will be more Radiohead songs throughout the rest of the writing challenge.  That is guaranteed.  Thom Yorke is an amazing songwriter.  My birthday looms.  Day 95…)

If you think you belong enough…

Take a picture with me looking away from the camera
Focused on matters just beyond it
My eyes are red
My dreams
Keep me awake at night.

Nightmares are design to frighten.
I’m never scared
Just up, pacing the room
Staring at the ceiling
Waiting for the weight of the necessity of sleep to overtake the weight of not being awake and living my dreams.

I pinch myself in hopes that the life I led isn’t real
There is better for me in reality
A smiling face meeting my gaze
Letting me know that
It was just a dream.

The thoughts sure seem real…
