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
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
What else is there to do
on a Sunday afternoon?
