Dreams - Poem by Elsa Bear

in a world of her own
a milion miles away from home
she escapes for a while.
she soars above the moutains,
over the sea and amongst the clouds.
she feels the wind on her face,
in her hair.
she feels free.
she skims rooftops,
and glides over the people below,
living their ordinary lives,
doing their ordinary jobs.
nine to five.
ordinary, functional families
sit down to ordinary dinners,
while she looks on in wonder.
she tries to find her not so ordinary family.
but no ones home.
the house is as dark and empty as it is in life.
opening her eyes
she snaps back to reality.
she's lying in bed,
and theres no one home.
