My mermaid hair swirls around
While my mind remains idle.
I’m turning the key, but
My imagination is in drive.
I’m going full throttle on the gas pedal.
Scenery swims past my windows, but
Why can’t I feel it?
I reach into the cavity of my chest, but
My ears pick up the reverberating of friendship
While I’m racking my brain trying to remember
What my voice sounds like.
But I catch a glimpse of those caramel apple eyes,
And everything hits me at once.
