Day After

The day breaks.
The alarm wakes
me from my dreams of
the day before
of music and magic.

Caught up in the songs.
Transported when i sing
to a place i have never been.
Mysterious and dazzling and
way up so very high.
I am me no longer.
There is no you or me
Instead there is just us.

We sail forth on crest of sound
for everyone to hear
all transfixed by conductor’s master strokes.
All following his fingers until
We reach the other side.
Thunderous applause.
Other people do exist.
I saw them finding their seat before.

But what a rude awakening.
How dull life is off the ocean wave.
Normality returns.
Washing dishes and sweeping floors
instead of the dizzy dazzling heights i crave.
