Is This Real? – Written Saturday 20th December 2003 (Aged 28)

Is This Real?

is this real?
is this just, ‘so surreal’
from picasso to warhol
it is something in-between
who says you have to be asleep
just so you can dream
and who said you had to be mad
just so you could scream
is this real,
i cannot quite tell
in a world where madness freely roams
i struggle for meaningful talk
i do not want to be alone
from blinding light through to cowley
and something in-between
is this real,
you and me?
tripping across the stars
the ones that perhaps fate has drawn
us, hanging on for dear life
well i have done, since i was born
