Inside (a poem)

I didn’t work from a prompt this time, but I did try to imagine someone other than myself…

the lamp-lit room
she sits and stares
at nothing in particular

this quiet space
she sits and waits
for no one in particular

She sits within
the here and now
but what she feels
is then and there
and someday soon

her open heart
she sighs and dreams
in peaceful slumber
