15, Park Avenue

a poem by

Manoj Porwal

I know I am dreaming
With my eyes and mind wide open
I see the world
The way I want it…

I draw the pleasure
From the world I see
You can’t touch it
You can’t see it
For it is the way I live

Break me or shake me
But you won’t believe in me
That’s the way you live…

Let the shackles break
Join my world
So that you can find
That you were dreaming
And all this time
It was me who was living…

Believe me
It was me who was living…
