Reaction in a dream

The idea remains anchored in your head
Sure looks like is there to stay
Situations you imagine work out certain way
A certain way

The idea that guided to prepare what way to act
Guided to prepare to one and same
The way that I should react in a
Situation of certain kind

Now I’m embarrassed to say
That I’m dazed and confused
The reaction to the situation
Was not even a fraction of the simulation
That my head kept practicing and rewinding
Kept minding and binding
A shock that left me without a thing to say
There was a dream in which reaction went a certain way
