Bad Day


As the sky darkens

The day turns to night

I welcome the darkness

The never-ending brightness of light

It tires me so

Reminding me

Of all that could have been

Of all I could be

But no, not today

Maybe another time

I will try, I say

For now, let me be

Let me retire

Let the embers die

Put out the fire

Let the darkness

Seep into my soul

Let the cold gloom

Take its toll
