Between waking and sleeping

I'm afraid,
between waking up and sleeping
I will lose myself in desires.
That you will disappear
before sunrise.
Sleep is not a place
everyday life.
I'm afraid
longing for an unknown longing
I know well
reality of existence.
I'm afraid to be afraid
my feelings
leave without knowing how
taste your lips.

Beautiful poem
Thank youheart beating heart beating
Maravillosa Mente , lindo
When we are asleep, and in between states, it is another world, a world of strange places, opaque glass vision; and of inverted desires, we all fear loss, it is our human condition, though nothing is permanent. Nice poem, really got me thinking....bouquet

When I saw the title, the "twilight zone" came to mind..
The time between fantasy and reality.
