Two worlds

I sit and listen

Not really hearing

Not focusing

I feel like I'm falling

In slow motion

My eyelids

Slide closed

Then jolt open

In fear

I start to drift

Away again

I hear a mumble

Of some importance

But I can't


I'm in two worlds

At once

One where I sit

In a stuffy classroom

The other

Full of sunshine

And color

And I wish so much

To part with the

Dull life

And blend

Into the color

But truth holds me

In my chair

Eyes half open

For now

I sit and listen

Not belonging

To either world

Not really hearing

Anything and everything
