Altered – Changed in character or composition, typically in a comparatively small but significant way.

Dream -A series of images, ideas, emotions, and sensations occurring 

involuntarily in the mind during certain stages of sleep.

Comparatively unremembered,
searching deep down,
finding what is real,
in a kingdom of pain,
searing beneath those dreams.

Altered states, remembered comparatives,
finished product on a discount shelf,
how hard to refine yourself,
no waiting, little temptation,
a cast iron ball under plastic sheathe,
dying to know how you've wound up, altered.

Alibi thrown your way,
can't seem to recall that day,
a time long ago...long ago,
painted memories,
drying in time,
each line...whispers,
comparative trial by fire,
all subjective.

A dream lasting a lifetime,
those altered states casting a lifeline,
your expectations...burning my wire,
dividing what I see, see crystal clear...

“In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on.” - Robert Frost

Did you take your precious time?
Find all you were looking for inside?
Although the likes are rushes of dopamine...
and each compliment a surge of fame...
I'd never gain truth that way.

They say one life,
I say die a thousand times,
just discover it's done,
not how you might like!

Tedious dreams, 
lifting a veil off your altered states...
