Basement of Dreams

I live in the basement of your dreams
Unseen
Untouched
For what seems a century
Decades maybe
A month or three at least
Great friends we once used to be
Chats and whispers we would scheme
The dreams of which I now live beneath
One thing plead you see
Before you’re lost in your defeats
The dream you’ve built on top of me
Does not have to be a fantasy
Understand who I am meant to be
More than a forgotten friend you see
I am the foundation of your dreams
I am the King of created things
I am your destiny
Do not forget how dream
Your childhood mysteries
Commit you plans to me
And I’ll make it your great reality

Followers

Why do you follow me?
Is it because of what you see?
Do you believe I am what you need me to be?
Is it because you’ve seen the man set free?
I wish to remain unseen, reduce my visibility.
I’ve conquered no enemies.
I’ve won no victories.
Unless you see what my savior sees.

He brought my death to its knees.
He came down and set me free.
Lost, now found.
Blind, now see.
Do you get what you are following?
I’m a dead man walking, He’s does the talking.
My flesh may decay away, but there are no chains on me.
If you want to follow me, find me at my saviors feet.
If you want to follow me, open your eyes to see.
I am the one following.

The light in me can live in thee.
He has no biased or proclivities.
All willing can follow my adopting King.
Adopting you as He adopted me.
Father to the father free.
Answering the orphan’s plea.
Someone please, please hold me.
Do not leave me in this captivity.
Do not turn a blind eye to me.
If you want to follow me, practice setting captives free.
If you want to follow me, open eyes to see.
I’m not the one you’re following.
