Tomorrow is Today is Yesterday

This is a bit similar to how I sometimes feel...I hope you can all relate to this

I'm sitting here alone with Today.

Yesterday has just left me.

Tomorrow's right around the corner.

I'm in deep comtemplation about where I'm heading:

Why has Yesterday left me so heartbroken?

I'm promised that someone will come along

And all this hurt and pain'll be gone.

But no one ever comes

And I'm left with you, Today,

As Yesterday slips away,

Forgetting all the promises she'd made.

Today you reassure me

That everything will be okay.

So I'm fill with optimism twined with doubt,

"There's always Tomorrow but will I ever get my turn?"

Tomorrow comes.

"Why d'you fell just like Today?"

You've arrived with the same old promises

That Today promised me Yesterday.

Then I realise;

Tomorrow has come disguised as Today.

I'm stuck within this cycle of promises and lies.

"All I ask for is love or have you forgotten why I cry?"

But I've had enough of these games.

Tomorrow never comes.

Yesterday has left me with vows that's turned into lies.

And Today arrives with the same old question:

"Will I ever get the chance to stare love in the eyes?"
