On Waking in the Bath

by cricketjeff on May 14, 2010.  © Jeff Green, All rights reserved

The cooling water’s shaken me awake
Reluctant eyes are nearly open wide
My unremembered dreams are forced to break
Reality replaces what’s inside

The radio’s about philosophy
The “trolley problem” if you wish to know
My mind’s confused it’s ceased to wander free
Now learned men are asking it to grow.

But back in bed I’ll be with you in dreams
And nothing else will matter for a while
Inside my heart life’s better than it seems
Inside my mind you’re waiting with a smile

I’m drifting off to find a hideaway
To live the life I dream of every day.
