Daydreaming, I find myself
dangling over the edge
of reality

Full of bills and alarm clocks
wishing, I look for an escape
in empty boxes

Calendar days, lining
the walls, and I try to pencil in
one more

Adventure before bedtime
but I get caught, obligation
and responsibility

Gripping my arms, pinning
back to reality, leaving me
to only daydream
