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

You do.
