armchair dreamer

you pause and look around
arms crossed
your eyes squinting
your brow furrowed
puzzled
it was right here, how did it move so far away, yet again!

going further and further away
leaving behind those
that stay right beside you
moving away seated on that chair
hours and days and years

your brow furrowed
puzzled
it was right here, how did it move so far away, yet again!
