How Bored Am I?

How bored am I here at work
Earlier today I had the biggest jerk
Standing 'round waiting on time
The flow of people stopped on a dime

No people here but staff
To myself I just laugh
So tired from working this double
Every thought like a bubble

Into space I stare, lost in thought
In this hell I feel I shall rot
How bored am I
Just staring at the sky

Counting down the hours 'till I go home
Wishing the streets I could roam
Anything to flee from this place
Anything to be with my own race

In a place where I'm not the only one
Who speaks English, and not just for fun
I tone them out, especially today
Because I'm just that bored.

~ Jessica

Into Space

Staring off at the wall
Feeling like I'm about to fall
Free as a bird without a care
Feeling the wind blow through my hair

Into space I travel again
Floating free, holding only a pen
On the walls I begin to write
Hoping my mind will soon take flight

These wonderful walls of white
In my mind I've reached a new height
Floating free into space
Coming down, the clouds I'll chase

Returning home to find you here
Sit and wait and have a beer
Fluffy feet go running past
Guess it's not 'home at last'

Still off in space with such a buzz
Everything around me has some fuzz
Which way is up and which is down
Reality returns, and I'm left with a frown.
