Daily missive for Tuesday the 18th of February~by Peter Forster



Daily missive for Tuesday the 18th of February

I thought it was yesterday
For the longest time
Until it was today
Then everything flew away
So quickly
Holding on to you
Hands clasped across
Oceans of space
Sweeping back the tide
Of emotions
Obscuring your face
Blurring my eyes
With tears
Lead me from this place
As darkness nears
Lost without you
In the tumbledown
Of doubts and fears,
There is no future
Only now
Is the answer
To an echo
Of where, what, how
To find the way
Inch by inch
Day by day
Through a maze
Of consequence
Brought low
Burned by an inferno
Seven times over
Until it ends
In surrender
Into a gloomy haze
Of yesterdays
And lost horizons.
