Today 

I’m a little absurd today
Tell me would you still
Like to bear with me this day

I fail to look up and love
This beautiful day today
I want to sit in a corner
Stare down at my feet, just this way
Curled up, hair dishevelled, sights lost far away
Tell me, would you still like to bear with me this day

The wind knocked that picture to the floor
Making a breaking sound as it goes
But I don’t want to pick it up today
I want to wonder how the ‘whoosh’ changed into ‘shatter’
And for now, nothing else matters
Tell me, would you still like to bear with me this day

I don’t want to close the doors today
I want to see the pictures the curtains paint, dancing in vain
I want to imagine a horse in the midst of those sepia flowers,
A home in that brocade
Tell me, would you still like to bear with me this day

I don’t want to talk to you today
Would you still be willing to listen
To the words I did not yet say
Or would you rather prefer to walk away
Check in on me perhaps some other time, just not this day

But don’t you worry a bit today
For I don’t blame you, I get why you are being this way
For even I wouldn’t want to bear with me this day

You see, I’m just a little absurd today
