In Real Life

Time for 5 Minute Friday with Gypsy Mama!!!

Today's prompt: In Real Life

There's a life I live in my head. It's in my world: a world of just me and happiness. I'm the most beautiful dancer, I sing great, there is no lack and I'm a hero everyday. I always find the answer. I always make everyone laugh. I've spent most of my childhood and teenage years here. I've re-enacted plays. I've rocked all kinds of stadiums. I've re-programmed software to save the day.

In real life though, I'm goofy and awkward and feel retarded most of the time. In real life I can't hardly formulate a good sentence to let people know how I feel. In real life I'm just average, mediocre. Words that I detest most of all.

Oh to live in my dreams and never wake up. I've lived lifetimes in my head. So much so... that I don't think I know how to live here.. now... in real life.....


  1. :) You're living just fine right here in real life, it seems!
    Write those lifetimes, I look forward to reading them.

  2. Ditto, Andrea...I think you are anything but told in the courage to be vulnerable here in this space. Beautiful post.
