I see things
I see things that I don’t understand
By the time I wake up, they’re gone
I try to understand what they mean
but it never comes back
I only remember remnants of my dreams
like people I don’t know who are happy or sad
and when I remember the whole dream
I see a big city that I’m looking over like a guardian
but in other dreams, I see it destroyed
I don’t tell anyone what I see
or blame myself for letting these dreams get in my head
All I do is see them
just watch them
and the dreams float away without a trace
