Asleep at the wheel
When you wake up, after days and days of dreaming, and realize it’s only been a few hours, something changes in your brain. It’s never permanent, but it is more powerful than we would like to admit. You just can’t shake that feeling that you’re still dreaming. You’re wide awake but your eyes are heavy and everything has that hazy, dreamlike quality to it. Maybe it’s your mind twisting things, but the world seems different too. It seems like you can follow your same routes and get to the same places, but things are changed along the way. Maybe someone looks at you from another car, or maybe no one looks. Maybe all the buses you see are stopped and not moving. Is it coincidence or is there something changed in you? Do you process the input differently? Same world, different you? Or is the world different and you’re the same? Like in a dream, you fight until the bitter end in the name of these random things, things that in real life you would never fight for…yet at the same time, you can’t shake the feeling that despite all your efforts, none of it matters. It’s just a dream, right?
