Stranger

No door,
no windows,
no floor.

I float,
I toss,
I bloat.

I am a
stranger
to my own
strange dreams.

No sky,
no ground,
only space.

The distance
I travel is
miles away
from home.

I am absent
in the absent
world.

I spin,
I stumble,
I grin.

The bed is
worried that
I can’t rouse.

But I did.
I really did.
I lacked sleep.

    every day is a question mark even the existence itself.life seems to be a dream at times and may be it is,once we may open our eyes to feel every images of now fading away just like how yesterdays are for today……
