Today, I woke up frowning
Like yesterday, and the day before.
Today, the day seems long
before it has even begun.
Today, the sunshine is a little dull
Just like always.
But today, there are noises
from the streets.
Of Tiny feet, thud, thud, thud.
Running around in the drizzle
soaking it in.
Like a doe, running wild
today, rosy lips smile so wide,
today, my heart melts a little
Today, I drag myself out too.
Half unconscious of what I am doing.
Today, I feel the drops
touch my skin,
today it will be the only
salty water touching my cheeks.
Today, I stop to smell the roses
And sing a little to myself,
Today I wear my hair down,
the house is filled with aroma
of little pleasures that are forbidden
Today, I forget the chains
that cut into my skin.
Today, I shut off the world,
Scared at first, liberated the second.
Today, I forget the mean lady
that stares from the mirror
Ever so tired. ever so melancholy.
Today, the child has run out,
Today, I feel a little playful.
Maybe just for today.
