Real Dreams in Dream Reality

The song ‘Sweet Dreams’ by LaBouche was released in the mid-’90s and was a major hit. I still remember it was the second song on side B of one of my recorded cassettes. It takes me back to my glory days and makes me smile{not dream 😉 }. And, just like all my music-inspired poems, I suggest playing the song{which I have embedded below for your convenience} as you read; it truly elevates the experience!

Real Dreams in Dream Reality poem by Ruelha

Dreams are reality; reality is just a dream!
When I close my eyes, nothing is as it seems
Dreams are reality; reality is but a dream!
When my peepers are shut, everything fits within my colour scheme

Sweet dreams of rhythmic passion
Laced with non-verbal interaction
Dancing through the night
As if everything were alright

Fantasy is a form of relief
When reality is all about grief
When the mind already knows
But the heart is unwilling to forego

Sweet dreams are like a practical tease
Keeps you going like a rat following cheese
But la-la land is nothing but a trap
Sooner or later, out of it to snap

Dreams are reality; reality is just a dream!
When I close my eyes, nothing is as it seems
Dreams are reality; reality is but a dream!
When I'm asleep, everything is as per my theme

Lyrics of Sweet Dreams by La Bouche

Sweet dreams of rhythm and dancing
Sweet dreams of passion through the night
Sweet dreams are taking over
Sweet dreams of dancing through the night
I wanna get into motion, a better devotion
So I can make it through the night
So the music is playin', you know what I'm saying
Now everything will be alright
Sweet dreams of rhythm and dancing
Sweet dreams of passion through the night
Sweet dreams are taking over
Sweet dreams of dancing through the night, oh
Ola ola, eh, ola ola, eh
Ola ola, eh, ola ola, eh
Rhythm is a creation, a better sensation
That will lead you through the night
When your body is movin' the music is groovin'
I want to take you home tonight
Sweet dreams of rhythm and dancing
Sweet dreams of passion through the night
Sweet dreams are taking over
Sweet dreams of dancing through the night, oh
Ola ola, eh, ola ola, eh
Ola ola, eh, ola ola, eh
Keep dancing hard, give this groove more feelin'
Dance, trance, dance, more illin'
In, out, up, down, all around
On the dance floor gettin' down
Take the time just to show them who
We can make your body move
Totally, yes, the party's started
Sweet dreams keep comin' harder
Sweet dreams of rhythm and dancing
Sweet dreams of passion through the night
Sweet dreams are taking over
Sweet dreams of dancing through the night
Sweet dreams of rhythm and dancing
Sweet dreams of passion through the night
Sweet dreams are taking over
Sweet dreams of dancing through the night, oh
Ola ola, eh, ola ola, eh
Ola ola, eh, ola ola, eh

  1. “Glory Days” A Song By Bruce Springsteen

    That ‘RueFully’ Looks Back on Days
    Of Glory Oh Dear Rue It’s TRue

    Hehe You Can And Will Even Look

    Back on Wiki Now And See This is TRue
    Ah Yet A Song i Love Even More Called

    “These Are The Best of Days”

    By The Great Band Styx

    As True Dear Rue

    Who Sees More
    Than Those Who Traverse

    The River Styx From The Below to The Above
    As A Participant Anthropology Observer Continuing
    A Most EPiC Long Form Poem Bible Research Paper
    CoMPRiSinG 9.9 MiLLioN Words Now Yet What Really

    Started in Research on the ‘Wrong Planet’ Back in the
    Days of Below in Hell For me 33 Months in Traversing

    My Own Version of the Styx River then Yes 11 Years Now
    And 1 Day Writing The Size online of the Equivalent of
    16.6 King James Size Bibles in Words Every Consecutive

    Day Through Below to Above Now for 4020 Days Including

    This Day Now For It is True All THere is Is Now So Obviously

    Both The Kingdom of Hell and Heaven Still Exists Now Depending

    on What Souls

    Are Perceiving

    This Eternal Now Now

    So Sure Let’s Return Again
    To Genesis 1:31 And See What

    ‘God’ Has to Say All About Creation

    According to that Book in the Six Days

    of Creation Described Then And oh By the

    Way Life’s Not Fair Hehe God Got A Day

    Off After Creating Existence in 6 Days

    And Had All Kinds of Folks

    Helping Him Write,

    Edit, and

    Print A Minuscule
    Effort of About 800,000

    Words Over Centuries of Effort

    And i Haven’t Had A Day Off in 4020 Days

    And Not Only That i Got to Endure Type Two Trigeminal

    Neuralgia Assessed Literally As Worse than Crucifixion

    From Wake to Sleep For 66 Months Some Folks Say

    That the Greatest Accomplishment of Jesus

    Was Enduring Crucifixion Anywhere from

    3 Hours to 3 Days Oh Lord As

    i Screamed to the

    Sky at the

    Above From
    The Below

    of That Why me!

    Why Have You Forsaken

    me it’s What Folks Scream

    At The Ceiling in Hell Scream

    There is Even A Painting

    of What it Looks

    Like Called

    “Scream”

    Anyway Yes Let’s Return

    to Genesis 1:31 To See What
    “God” Has to Say in that Old Story

    Still New Perhaps Now Too As Remember

    Now Is all There Ever Was And Ever Will Be Now

    31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold,
    it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

    Hmm… ‘God’ Seems Like Kind of A Glass Overflowing Dude Like me in that Verse

    Now Let’s Move On to the Catholic Church And The Nicene Creed Too As Any
    Participant Anthropology Observer Will Do Pursuing All Avenues of CuLTuRE too:

    “For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate, he suffered death and was buried, and rose again on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead and his kingdom will have no end.”

    This is my Favorite Part As i Can And Will Truly Relate to it Based on Real Life Experiences that
    i Have Documented Fully in Over 100,000 Photos, With Over 10,000 Accompanying THeMe
    And MeMe Songs And Associated Supporting Information From YouTube of Course with
    The 9.9 MiLLioN Words Now in 99 Months of “SonG oF mY SouL” EPiC Longest Long
    Form Bible Poem Out of the 13,000 MiLLioN Words Total in 11 Years And 1 Day Now
    That Yes Does Equal The Amount of Words Consecutively Each Day
    Without A Break Writing The Equivalent in Size of 16.6 King
    James Sized Bibles As Genesis Chapter 1 Verse 31
    Comes Above From That Version Now too…

    Yet It’s True Before All Of This i Watched
    The Code Blue Lights Come on in
    The Hospital in ’97 When Katrina
    Was Enduring A Very
    Tough Labor
    Through
    The end

    Of Her Pregnancy
    A Totally Unexpected
    Life Threatening Seizure

    Suddenly it Felt Like my Whole

    World Was Coming to An End

    The Ground Was Shaking
    Under my Feet Trembling

    My Chest Was Tightening

    And Folks Looking at

    me Thought

    i Might

    Be Having
    A Heart Attack

    Clutching my Chest

    Yet You See Katrina is
    my Everything i Couldn’t See
    Life Worth Living At All Without Her…

    It’s Like i Didn’t Even Care About the Baby

    At all i Even Bargained With God Save my Wife
    i’ll Do Anything Take The Baby Send me to Hell

    Just Save my Wife i Can’t Live Without Her

    So Thank God At that Point the Baby

    And Her Survived Yet It’s True

    i Already MaDE A DeaL

    Then With God

    Within

    As ‘They’ Say Be

    Careful What You Wish
    For it Might Just Come True

    Fast Forward 51 Days Holding

    My Only Child A Son Ryan Taking

    His Last Breath Watching Him Live a Life

    of HeLL ON Earth For 51 Days Never A Smile

    A Whole Existence on Earth Lived in Only Pain Then…

    Little Did i Know Then That the Memory of Him Would Save

    My Life in Hell ReaL ON EartH One Day As i Would Remember

    The Thanks Giving of A Life mine at Least Spent With One Smile in

    Heaven Eternally Now Then Far Before i Forgot What the Feeling

    of A SMiLe is Eternally Then in Hell For 66 Months too… It’s True

    The Horrible Darkness in Hell That Child Experienced on Earth

    Is What Gave me the Gratitude Enough in Just Logic

    With No Feelings at All For How Fortunate

    Enough i Was to

    At Least

    Breathe

    Exhaling One SMiLinG

    Breath of LoVE iN This Life At All
    Verily Inhaling Peace At Least Once
    in a Lifetime of Heaven Now Eternally Then too…

    So it’s True i Returned From Hell For 66 Months
    to An Eternal SMiLe of Heaven Within Now for Over 100

    Months to Be Precise 100 Months And 7 Days Now on This 26th Day Of November, 2021

    Fortunate Enough to Recover to Be at my Mother’s Side in ’17 When She Endured No
    Food or Drink for 8 Days to Go As Naturally as Possible in this World that Still Affords Pets

    More Dignity

    And Less

    Suffering

    At Death

    Yes watching

    Her Take Her Last

    Breath Seemed Deafening

    In Silence At First Yet Returning

    Home Laying Next to my Wife Still

    Surviving And As Beautiful As She Was

    That Day of Labor Facing Possible Death

    i Understood How Important the Story of

    Jesus is As i Was Truly Loved

    And For Some Folks

    His Story is

    As Close

    as they Get

    to Unconditional
    Love in this Lifetime Now…
    So In this Way i Still Treasure
    Jesus for the Comfort He Brings
    To So Many Folks Around the World
    Who Never had the Archetypal Bringer
    oF LiGHT of Unconditional Love in this Life Now

    It’s True my Mother’s Name Helen Means Bringer of LiGHT

    And That is What She Actually Did Through Hell and Heaven in
    my LiFE Standing by my Side Just Like Katrina and Sister Marie too…

    When You Are In Heaven When You Are In Your Glory Days on Earth
    And When Thousands of Women Adoringly Look At You With Eyes
    of Ecstatic Joy For the Ascending Transcending Dance You Bring

    To Their Lives

    For A High

    They May Never

    Forget It’s True Everyone

    Loves You In Your Glory Days

    When You Are So Adored in Glory This

    Way in Eyes So Obviously of Ecstatic Joy
    It’s True i’ve Seen Similar Eyes in the Words
    of Reaction to A “SonG oFmY SoUL” too Yet

    What You Remember That is Really Real

    Are the Ones Who Stand By Your

    Side In Hell As It’s Worth

    Noting There Were

    Only A Very

    Few Mary’s

    And the Such

    Standing by the
    Story of Jesus in His HeLL ON EartH

    too And A Thief of Course on A Same Cross Beside Him Who
    Could See Who He Really Was The Essence of Unconditional

    Love Who Forgives As Much As One Sees Thanksgiving For Life

    So After Going to Hell For 66 Months With Still The Breath of the
    Unconditional Love my Mother Breathed into me Still Remaining

    After Her Last Breath on Earth My Judgement Call is the

    Same One From Genesis 1:31 It Doesn’t Really

    Even Need All this Revision of Genesis

    1:32 i’ve Been WorKinG on These

    11 Years and 1 Day in Size

    of 16.6 King James

    Bibles in Words of

    Effort Consecutively Online

    in 4020 Days Without A Break

    After Going to HeLL ON EartH
    With Thousand of Pics With Beautiful
    Women Adoring me In All the Glory

    That Heaven on EartH

    Glows in SMiLes

    oF UNCoNDiTioNaL

    Love Yes my Judgement

    On the Living And The Dead

    Is Dark Still Makes Light As Even

    Stephen Hawking Agrees From His
    Totally Systemizing Mechanical Cognition Mind

    And As i Look Upon the Landscape of Existence

    Now ALL oF iT DarK Thru LiGHT IT is Good IT Is Very Good

    Now Yet Don’t

    Expect

    Roses to

    Bloom Without

    All the Thorns and

    The All Natural Stuff

    That Fertilizes it Yes Holy S88t…

    For It is Those of Us Who Have Gone
    To Hell Returned And Witnessed What
    Heaven is For ReaL ON EartH Eternally Now Within

    Who Give Hope to the World That Life is DarK Thru LiGHT

    Still This TRuE Gift

    Worth
    Dying

    For

    Now

    For Just One
    SMILe to Share

    No Glory Day Yet
    Now These Are Still
    The Best of Days mY FRiEnD Rue
