Is The Dreaming?



It was in a marble hall in the lightless night -
I do not know the reason, but they had came
to say me, that time has stopped.
And heart in my chest wasn't beating.

Oh, perhaps this all was a dreaming -
dreamings are very diverse - so might be.
But it is the second reality, so can be somewhere
time has stopped, terminated, finished.

Oh, perhaps the time has terminated -
somewhere out there, in a parallel universe,
where everything's quiet, eternally
and nobody's alive. Their sun was down.

Nobody's alive, and their sun was down...
I'm lying with rum in my bed.
I'm still not interrupted, although may be enough,
I'm not sleeping, it's my dreaming, isn't it?
