I am no longer on pause

If we are going to be inside
this pandemic
for months to come,
I want to stop looking out
the window.

I want to find a way to thrive
through this time,
not to wait
it out.

To keep people safe,
not keep them at bay.

If life is a sheet of paper,
I want to stop complaining
about how small mine is,
and instead cover every inch
of it in colour.

I want to wear a mask
with sequins,
and go for walks
with old friends
in the rain.

I want to talk for hours on the phone
like I did when I was a teenager,
and I want to mail postcards
from a different suburb
each week.

I don’t need to push
any rules,
only my finger
on the play button

For I am no longer
on pause.

Do you hear that?

It’s the sound
of my dreams,
