May 4, 2016 Writer's Digest / A Different Realm

A Different Realm

when everything stops            in the silence after            get down to business

make a list                               throw out the trash            pay the bills

so much to do                          or nothing at all                 the clock ticks in the hall

the hands on the face               either spin out of control    or seem to have stopped

wait for the mail                      pinch yourself                     to see if you really are

turn on the tv                           they are speaking                a different language

you can't understand               no one can explain              you are in a different realm

you are neither                        king nor queen                    just passing through

I so hear you about not understanding what they're saying on tv...my poem was about that today, LOL.
