Daydreams

Daydreams

A Poem by gypsy.soul
"

Describes the life some of us women know all too well. With expectations constantly hanging over our heads, this poems describes what we all look forward to at the end of the day.

"
Let your hair down, 
wet a rag and drag it across your face. 
Watch the real you reveal itself from the ruins. 
Do you recognize your own reflection? 
Take off those skinny jeans
and put on an over-sized shirt. 
Go ahead and throw on your favorite tunes
dance in the kitchen while you cook dinner 
and sing at the top of your lungs
Brew a nice cup of tea while you're at it.
Maybe even sketch something or read a book 
while you cuddle up on the couch 
with your favorite overthrow or blanket draped over your body.
Take a nice hot bath with a scented bath bomb. 
Breathe it in, 
take it all in. 
Daydream about that one boy.
Imagine him being there with you for you to fall asleep 
with your head of his chest 
listening to his heartbeat. 
Imagine dancing with him in the kitchen as you cook your dinner. 
Just imagine. 
Now get out of the bath, 
go to your room
and get ready for bed. 
Lay down in your comfiest nightgown
and pull the covers up to your chin
Daydream about the perfect life. 
Then you wake up. 
None of it was real 
all a dream;
a perfect dream. 
Wake up to your mom yelling at you about 
a stupid thing you did. 
Drag yourself to the shower and get ready for school. 
Put your makeup on and paint a smile on your face. 
Walk to the bus stop and prepare for the dreading day,
but always remember to greet with a smile. 
All to come home, do your chores, 
cook for the family, 
take a quick, warm shower, 
go to bed, 
and repeat.

I read your profile, and you're right everyone has and needs a voice. I find it's very hit or miss online at WC sometimes. I've been here since 2011 and I've had to struggle have a voice some days and other days it feels like I'm above ground.

As for your poem I see it leans towards that same theme. I enjoyed the poems I completely. It's actually my ritual except for school, I have work. Your story was brought to life, good job.

PS. I'm impressed to she your formatting was spot on.
