One of Those Days, you know?
Today I have been tricked
into waving hello
flashing a morning smile
I was taken by surprise
with this voice in my direction
These are the days I long for silence
Today I almost took the train
to look out a window
daydreaming with nowhere to go
but then I’m reminded of the cold in my bones
You know what I speak of
Today it rained in the a.m.
why must the weather be such a tease?
I didn’t ask for sunshine
to get me through the day
all I wanted were a few clouds in my oatmeal.
Like those orphanages on t.v.
But why complain
about the smallest detail of things
when there is much more to be had
outside the front door?
I can’t take another chance on those behind me
I just want the right person to be on the other side
But why let the faults
of stupid mistakes
hit you where it hurts
where it really hurts.
Tomorrow is possible
while today is only a blink and it’s gone
When the right song comes on I’m okay again
It’s not a sad moment
never a dull one at that
Some days just feel less extraordinary
than the last
and we all want THOSE last days back
Some days grey clouds are better
than the harsh stare from the sun
or an unloving love
some days the pillow looks better
than the maze of routine no one cares for.
Routine died when we learned to tie our own shoes
Today I woke up late
dreamt all that I could
hung on to that moment pulling me back
locking the doors of wishful sleeping
Today was just one of those days
I’m getting that shine back…slowly
