Dazed and Dissociative During the Day

Dazed and Dissociative During the Day

A Poem by shockandawe

Trying to pay attention 
Attempting to portray some learning retention
I'm staring right at the teacher 
But not hearing a word she says 

In my own thoughts, which is not where I want to be 
It's a struggle for me 
Even after drinking a cup of coffee 
To stay here on earth properly 

The teacher calls me out 
She makes me demonstrate for the class
Afterward, I ask 
How did you know I was not on task? 
She says "Do you really wanna know why?"
"Yes", I mumble 
"You're like that rolling stones song- The Girl With the Faraway Eyes"

Great poem! I think if you use that song as the title it could really have a good ring to it - "The girl with the Faraway Eyes".......
Daydreaming gets us into trouble, though often it is worth it....;)
