Poem: Domesticated Lyric

Watching the clock
As it marches on
Lying awake she wonders
To herself about motivations
For still being here 

Does it make her happy
When it doesn’t bring her pain
Does it keep her from crying
When it doesn’t make her insane

Over banal dinners
Nights with out pleasure
Conversations with a stranger
Who knows her name
Day after day it’s always the same

Does it make her happy
When it doesn’t bring her pain
Does it keep her from crying
When it doesn’t make her insane

Each passing moment
It gets easier than the last
As she forgets who she is
Settling into this life
Of comfort without meaning

Does it make her happy
When it doesn’t bring her pain
Does it keep her from crying
When it doesn’t make her insane

It’s hurts to smile
No one sees the pain
She’s still the same beautiful girl
And when she’s with him
They still tell her the same

Does it make her happy
When it doesn’t bring her pain
Does it keep her from crying
When it doesn’t make her insane

Beyond the window and over the sea
She thinks maybe somewhere out there
There’s a girl just like me
With big hopes and dreams
And she’s living them all

Does it make her happy
When it doesn’t bring her pain
Does it keep her from crying
When it doesn’t make her insane
