“Thoughts of Monday”

 

Sunday

slowly rolls over

her

the whole day

lay before her

but she has

Monday

on her mind

unable to soak

up

the soft sun

that the day

was splashing

against her skin

it rolled right

off her

draining away

along with the

time

that Sunday called

it’s own,

she was well past

troubled

not wanting to

accept the facts

but too smart

a girl

to ignore

the way they

were dropping

into place

for her

so many little

things

that were hardly

noticeable before,

but now their

like tiny thorns

dragging against the

fabric

of her life

more of an

irritation

but still causing

the occasional tear

the kind she

knows

only get bigger

over time,

the sun tried

once more

to grab hold

of her

lift her up

with its warm

kisses

but she couldn’t

feel

its affection

nothing was getting

through to her

blocked out by

the dark clouds

in her head

she really tried

to love him

why couldn’t it

just work out

for her

for once,

she reaches out

for her cup of

coffee

sticks her finger

into the full

mug

coffee’s gone

cold

on a hot

summer day

she puts her

finger

into her mouth

her lips

separate

the coffee from

her finger

as she pulls it

from her mouth

she leans forward

in her chair

I have to

tell him

she whispers

she sticks her

finger

back into her

coffee

I’ll tell him

tomorrow,

she takes the

coffee

from her finger

in the same

fashion

as before

I’ll tell him

Monday…
