the in-between

there are moments when dreams continue
even after waking up
moments when reality still plays -
peek-a-boo with the sleepy eyes
i call it the in-between
in between coming out of sleep -
and being fully awake,
aware of the surroundings.
moments -
before all the thoughts
re-download into the conscious mind.

every morning when i open my eyes
i wish those ‘in-between’ moments -
the moments of unclarity
extend for some more time -
so that i can prepare myself -
to face the day.
I need some more time - 
when I am just me 
when I am responsible only for myself
before I can begin to play a role;
before I am responsible for someone else.
