She reads news clips from old magazines
Files her nails down like you desire
Changes her dress to something beautiful
Puts on some perfume
Paces the floor wondering what might of been
Jots down a few notes about life
Makes faces in a mirror to pass the time.
Want to know what your lady does while you’re awake?
Those things, and more.
But when you close your eyes
There she is
Looking at you
Or wandering away-
Wanting you to catch up with her
And in your slumber
