Today Was Today.

The coin flipped
Landed despair side up
Despondency flows naturally
Head is fogged in
Can’t remember what I did
or didn’t do
minutes or seconds ago

Bad days
Where despising
who you are
comes so easily
Where you really wonder
if she cares about you
Despite all that was said and done
Because of all that was said and done
So busy while she is away
Struggling with her home again

Sheltering others from how I feel
Withdawing from contact
Whilst feeling lonely at the same time

Get a grip
Pocket that coin
Make your own decisions
Don’t let emotional bullies drag you down

  1. This is one of my favourites of all your poems Peter. It says so much, speaks so clearly of those feelings which are so hard to describe.

    (and I especially love the opening lines)

    I hope that better days come your way soon though x
