sing along

This poem is real in the sense that I do sometimes feel oddly disconnected from everything and everyone around me.

sing along

I feel separate from everything
as though I am standing outside of life
and I am merely a spectator of everything
and not a participant in
what I see and hear and feel

I get the feeling that something is wrong
but I can't figure out exactly what it is
it's like I have forgotten to do something important
some chore left undone
or a bill unpaid

those strange sensations come over me
out of nowhere
then I start to realize
those feelings have no validity
there is nothing behind them
they are merely ghosts
they do not have any substance

those feelings make me feel restless
they make me want to get up and move
take a long drive
just the act of moving
going somewhere
helps those feelings to go away

I start to realize everything is all right
and after a while I start to feel better
about everything
the alienated feeling slowly fades
and I turn up the car radio
start to sing along
to Dexys Midnight Runners
"With you in that dress
My thoughts I confess
Verge on dirty
Ah come on Eileen . . ."
