Shadows By The Fireplace

Shadows by the fireplace
Illuminating dreams and dusts
Running through the courtyard
Gathers in my shoes
I bend down
To dust them off
My back aches
I stand straight
Try again
Bending down
And I remember
I haven't exercised since a long time
Blame my laziness
Or whatever
Can't play blame game now
I bend again
And touch the ground
Only to realize
That I stand opposite
Vertically opposite
With the sky beneath me
As I look down upon the clouds
The room fades away
In oblivion, probably
Or that's the word they use
They, who?
Aha, the people who write
With the world and the room
Upside Down
I jump high and hit the ground
And lo, I fall off from the height
"Ouch," cried I
Looks of wonder
My eyes still heavy
As I clean my bruises
And realize, it was all a stupid dream
Having slipped off the bed.
