What Happened to You?

What is it that you see

in your mind

Looking at the ocean

& the city’s skyline?

 

What is it that you think

behind those eyes

brown & looking dark

as night.

 

Is it them

or her

or me

Someone you don’t know

A place you’ve never been

or a day you’ve never seen

but surely a place you

long to be

 

Or are you right where you

want yourself

Is there nothing you’d change

Traveling in a band

playing music with your

friends

 

Are you happy there

Even when the music ends

 

I think of moving &

think of family

 

Don’t you miss your grandparents

and parents

Don’t you wish you could sip tea

at grandmummy’s?

 

Don’t you miss French wine

& stars & curls of

the one you loved

 

Or the eyes of your

children

 

What else is there to do

on a Sunday afternoon?
