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... "I fell apart, but got back up again." - 30 Seconds to Mars “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... repeat...repeat...repeat...infinite. Comparative...indeed.
