No longer the last day of quarantine

So much of me is gone that I almost forgot I'm here
Here in Rome, housebound and not home
Clutching my cell phone. alone
Days spent dreaming of others, so
I forget to live my own

I forgot how much I had dreamed of this one.
One day, I said, today would come.
And it's here but not lived.
And I don't know how many hours I've spent in this room
But I'm dying to move on and live the days soon.

Today, April 3rd was (until this past Wednesday) the tentative last day of quarantine. They’ve extended the date a week, and hopefully after that will slowly begin taking off restrictions.
