Poem - The Day That Lied

The poem “The Day That Lied” is about an actual weekend during which I lost Saturday. I spent the whole of Sunday believing that the next day was going to be the actual Sunday. Needless to say, I was disappointed.



The Day That Lied

Somewhere I lost a day
twenty-four hours went away
this I knew when I awoke
and the time had been revoked
fast-forward to the now
with whiplash in full effect
by a skip of in-between
in the realm of consciousness

tomorrow has been replaced
without remembering yesterday
the memory empty as a void
where the experiences were explored
those hours are now gone
stolen by the thief I’ll absolve
my mind was the fiend
leaving me now betrayed

I’ll continue to move forward
knowing tomorrows are one short
hoping the rest will arrive
and not repeat the day that lied.
