Cognition in an altered mental state
Perceptions overwhelm
Six senses of life, focussed, integrate to create one image

A keepsake, dragged through the vicissitudes
of countless years in search
of introspection
of some form of familiarity
of something to hold on to

I have seen these colours as cruelty
I have seen through their whimsical eyes

I have suffered such loss of self

I've been dreaming. Eight years and counting
Rapid eye movements. Sleep in distress

I emerge from the realm below, regaining comprehensible thought patterns
Regaining comprehensible thought patterns after a lasting lapse in a vivid dreamscape
Regaining tangible, sentient reality
Come to light

Vital signs now begin to wane, as my body continues to weaken

You're kept well informed of the state that you've put me in
Reality never done me any good anyway
So I may as well embrace this fucking coma

This systematic shutdown progressively closes in
Leaving me with nothing but my own thoughts

Fading in and out of consciousness
In and out of a vivid, neverending cycle of false hope
A dialectic void
