Day Dreaming

There’s a spot in my mind knocking. Some nights it pounds so loud I get sad. Sad I don’t have what it takes to let a part of me seep through. Never have I ever felt comfortable enough to answer the call in front of others. I close my eyes tight at night and I know the darkness brings it peace. It can roam free in my dreams, frolicking in the beauty of the world I can’t visit during the day. Sometimes I startle myself awake and wonder what life would be like if it wasn’t held captive. Sometimes I wonder what life would be like if I dared to dream during the day.
