A DARK DAY
As I sit and wait for the day to pass
I keep my head just above water so I do not drown.
On my face is a smile turned upside down.
I squeeze my eyes tight in hopes the day will leave
But to my surprise it lengthiness with ease.
It's pushed me further, so I fell to my knees.
My hopes, my dreams they are so far away
Star light star bright.
Where have you all gone this night?
Blackness touches my skin
It surrounds me with a deep embrace.
It holds me tight but does not catch the tear that falls from my face.
It's over now.
The black has turned to gray.
My eyes will soon open. Tomorrow is another day.
