I am awake for once.
The days gone by are forgotten like a dream.
I have only a vague memory of those months.
My past has left me in a quandary.
I have shame from my thoughts before.
I don’t know which are true.
My reality is a tenuous mist.
I wait for the chance to awaken again.
I had a moment where I broke.
I can see the line that I crossed.
It was neither announced nor marked.
When I awoke, my body was sick.
My mind had been lost in a haze.
Those mysteries are fading now.
I am finding the truth again.
I had had stark doubts and a confused mind.
I hope I do not sleep so hard again.
I wait to see the daylight with open eyes.
