Someone Else

I spent a life
living someone else
spent a night
loving someone else
spent a day
watching someone else’s sunrise
and sunset
walked through
someone else’s rain
slid on someone else’s ice
danced in snow
catching snowflakes
destined for someone else,
dialed numbers
entered codes
finished sentences
forgot names
begged forgiveness
taunted in anger
cried in sadness,
always living a life
someone else.
