Daydreamer

His voice was loud and sudden

It caused me to jolt back to reality

I was daydreaming again

Wishing for things like

Tenderness, romance and touch

Sincerity, kindness and maturity

Sobriety, awareness and presence of mind

But these days my dreams seem impossible

As he drifts further away

 

He is asking about dinner

And I sigh and answer him

Back to my reality

Where I feel so forgotten…
