Warm Daydreams

In the dusk of the setting summer sun 
Clouds of gnats performing their chaotic dance 
Lying in the grass, I would watch them 
as I daydreamed 
Someday, I would be a grown up 
I would have a car 
A first love 
I pluck a blade of grass from the patch by my 
hand and nibble it slowly, mindlessly 
As I wander in my
head I wonder,
Would I be tall?
Where would I work?
Surely I would go to a prestigious university 
after highschool 
But for now... Something tickles my leg 
An ant is exploring me 
I idly brush it off and settle with
my thoughts once again
Arms behind my head 
I dream of a life to be 
Knowing all the while it will most likely 
not happen like that 
But losing myself to the fantasy 
nonetheless, as the sun paints 
the sky a brilliant rainbow 
sunset.
