I think you are describing prime disease! Symtoms; irational desire for bokeh, don't care about low contrast or prefer that, constant dreaming and diziness which is depicted in your art.

I think you are in the begining stages and the only known cure is prime L glass such as the 85mm L, 50mm L and so on!
