She was present but elsewhere.

Her body occupied space

but her mind was constantly wandering

through the endless possibilities

of lives she wished to explore

but not live.

 

A mystery to those around her

many fell prey to the life she showed them

wishing, hoping, praying

that this time

this life would stick

and that these songs

would be her favorite songs

tomorrow, today,

and in twenty-three years

when the house is paid off

and parents have gone

but one day she blinked

and when she opened up her eyes

someone else happened to be standing there

someone with a different favorite song

and a blue car

with a sunroof

and she explored a new life

all over again.
