Today, I Guess

Today, I Guess

I stood in the shower ’til the water turned cold
Felt like a tough day was about to unfold
On the edge of the bed, I sighed and got dressed
I'm going to really miss someone today, I guess
The pot of coffee I made was a little too strong
I lost count of the scoops and perked it too long
Like a wet, heavy blanket you can't throw aside
The last page of our fairytale story book lied
The bill must've arrived for past sins I must pay
I guess I just really miss someone today

Picked up the newspaper again and again
I’m seeing the words but I don't comprehend
All my thoughts and my focus just seem to digress
I just really miss someone today, I guess
The sun may be shining but my skies are gray
I want the hot sun to burn these thick clouds away
Like eyes on a portrait, I'm staring so far away
I guess I just really miss someone today

The unscathed proclaim that time heals all wounds
Still I’m haunted by visions from that warm afternoon
Perhaps more time is needed, but nevertheless
i just really miss someone today, I guess
It seems my ship’s docked in Melancholy Bay
I guess I just really miss someone today

My spirits always pick up upon her arrival
Her loving smile is essential for my soul’s survival
Before falling asleep I whisper, “honey I had a bad day“
She says “I know you did darling, I had one yesterday”
We get up every morning with great loss to address
That's what happens when you really miss someone, I guess
The sun may be shining but my skies are gray
I guess I just really miss someone today

THE MARK
.
If you take the time to read a poem then take the time to let the author know you were there. Study it and form an opinion as well, even if it means going back to it more than once. That is basic critique, what Neopoet is all about.
