Waking up and wondering
If it’ll chase me down today.
For, I eased myself to slumber
And forced its presence away.
But, the moment that beckons the daybreak
Brings its feet on the floor, once again.
Hiding behind the shadows,
Awaiting its time to win.
I approach the day with caution
For, I know what’s a step behind.
It only takes one steady breath
To steal my piece of mind.
The fear of the inevitable
Can paralyze at best.
The panic rises deep inside
At the racing in my chest.
It’s inevitable we’ll meet again;
You connect with me, every way.
The demons from past are reluctant to leave….
You’re, clearly, my bad day.
