Another Day

By: Ezra Bebop

 

Oh!

another day come and gone!

more missed emails and unsent texts 

some are fresh-like, 1-2 business days 

some are like the rotten banana in my backpack 

 

another day come and gone! 

more longing/pining/suffocating 

more staring/looking away/turning around

more dreams/confusion/lies 

 

Pretending the world didn’t end with you

Pretending our ashy hands can bind screaming sirens 

Pretending they beckon a hero and not black and white doom

Pretending I had words left to say 

 

Oh! 

another day has come and gone 

but

without you 

i don’t know when another 

will ever come again
