You’ve been gone for a while. Until today. Today you decided to hit me like a tonne of bricks. Turn me into a zombie. Make me cry in a meeting and snap at my friends. Today you made me mean and tired and you made me not care.
You made me hide in my room all day, you made me sit in the dark and my thoughts darkened with it. Today was not ok. Today I crawled into bed at 8pm but I’d wanted today to be over since the second I woke up.
Today you won, I didn’t even try to fight you, I let you wash over me like rain. I forgot your power and today you reminded me of it. Thank you.
Today is not tomorrow. You can have today, but tomorrow is mine.
Tomorrow I will smile again and laugh, I’ll chat to friends and open the door. I’ll turn the light on and pretend no one saw me shed that tear in the meeting.
Yes, you can have today, but tomorrow is mine.
