Dreaming the World

As I sat on the cold floor
dreaming out the window
I forgot myself.
I lived in my dream
and forgot the world.
When I woke up
I was afraid,
scared of the life
that I saw others lead.
Wanting my life
to comprise of something
different, better.
I knew I could not exist
in the world that I saw
and wondered
where I could exist.
My mind withdrew
from this unfamiliar world
and its inhabitants.
I am not like them.
I thought maybe I could
create my own world
where I could live
as I choose.
I sat on the floor
dreaming out the window.
