Happy Valentine's Day!
Heavy morning fades in bright
like a darkness looking for the light
and wakes me from a restless sleep
to another day, another week.
Filled with sames and stillness near
in a rut of routine and fear
endless is the monotony
of wake, wash, rinse, repeat.
Staring long between the folds
yearning for a life to hold
to find the who and what you are
among the plain, simple and blah.
And hope comes as a tempting swing
that lifts you up and down again
until the eyes are tucked away
from the transience of the day.
