Daydreaming (an oldie)

Looking but not seeing
From the outside they see a distant gaze
Behind your eyes is another world
Time freezes and movement around you suspends
Pushing through the air with underwater grace
Every breath you take seems to last an eternity
Letting out a sigh of content as vivid images dance across your mind
Somewhere far away, somewhere you can never go back to, somewhere you have yet to be
Sounds around you fade away, nothing exists but the soundtrack in your head

A gentle tap shatters the fragile state of mind like a bullet through glass
You watch in vain as the last traces of your subconscious thoughts disappear
Slipping through the cracks of your mind and falling like shards onto the tiled floor
