Dream Scheme

You invade my sleep and open my dreams
How many more times, before I should scream
You’re not aware of, what happens to me
You’re unconscious of or so it would seem

I pass by you and do I hear a smirk?
I can’t escape it, you shop where I work
Keeping my head up, I help if I’m asked
Nothing you can say can get me unmasked

How I run my life, shouldn’t include my dreams
It seems unfair and outside of life’s schemes
However I see it, doesn’t matter at all
Within my dreams, I’m up against the wall

The keyboard laying flat between my hands
Little fingers raising the lower edge
Tactile dots under my index finger tips
ESC and CTRL are within my fingers reach
